In collecting and arranging these records of the Wallbridge family, care 
has been taken to verify as far as possible the dates of birth, marriage and 
death, and other statements. 

In many cases, several dates for one or more of the events above men- 
tioned have been received from as many descendants, and errors will doubt- 
less be found. From those who have wrestled with similar work I shall have 
appreciative sympathy; as for others, let them try it, and they will not 
murmur at an occasional misstatement. Especial efforts have been made to 
trace each dead or living descendant, and many a letter, unreturned and un- 
answered, testifies to the carelessness or indifTerence of those who will prob- 
ably be the first to find fault with their omission. 

I wish to express to the members of the family who have aided in pre- 
paring this record, my appreciation of their courtesy, and doubt not they will 
find their reward in seeing their line of descent clearly traced and preserved 
for coming generations. 

Many of the items relating to the English branches are taken from notes 
left by T. C. Wallbridge, Esq., of Belleville, Canada, and kindly loaned me 
by his widow. He began prior to 1868 to collect data for family history, 
and made some inquiries while in England about that time. Nearly all of 
the name that he came across were farmers or men of low estate, and the 
American branch seems to have developed to a greater degree than the 

W. G. Wallbridge. 

Litchfield, Conn., May i, 1898. 



Two indices are given, the first showing those of the family name, with 
date of birth and a number for each person. 

The second index contains all surnames other than Wallbridge, and the 
reference is by page. 

To use the first index, note the immber before the desired name, look 
for same on the centre of page, and if not there, find it by running back on 
the marginal numbers. 

The figure at the upper right hand of the name denotes the generation, 
and the names in the parentheses give the line of descent. 

Any two of these lines written one above the other, give the relation- 
ship at a glance, as for instance : 
589. OLIN GEORGE« (George,'' Slcbbws,^ Ebenezer,^ Ebeneser,^ Henry^). 

549. HORACE S. * {Chester,'' Henry,* Ebenezer,^ Ebenezer,^ Henry^). 

showing second cousinship between those first named, with Ebenezer of the 
third generation as their first common ancestor. 

The usual abbreviations are used : b. for birth, m. for marriage, d. for 
death,- T. R. and C. R. for town and church records, B., Bennington; C, 
Coventry; P., Franklin; L., Lisbon; N., Norwich; P., Preston; S., Stafford; 
Sh., Sharon; T., Tolland; W., Westfield. 



In 1884, town and church records, letters and other sources of informa- 
tion were searched to ascertain the proper orthography, and subsequent 
work in the same Hne has confirmed the conclusion then arrived at that 
although one 1 is now commonly used by the family in the United States, 
the original and correct spelling of the name was Wallbridge. 

The English records and branches so spell it. Both the church and 
town records of Norwich, Conn., the home of our first American ancestor, 
so spell it during a period extending from 1680 to 1790, as do the records of 
the neighboring towns of Lisbon, Franklin, Preston, and Canterburj'. The 
town records of Coventry, Conn., having entries from 1767 to 1773, so spell 
it, as do the town and church records of Stafford, Conn., between 1735 and 
1800; and only on the records of Xorthfield, Mass., and Bennington, \'t.. 
do we find the name spelled Walbridge. The Canadian branches, with one 
exception, use the double 1. A grandson of Zebulon said that Zebulon (born 
1718, died 1809) dropped one 1, saying that one was enough for any man's 
name, while another descendant wrote that his father told his sons to use the 
double 1. as that was the old and correct way, which they have since done. 

A dau. of Jewett Wallbridge, who was born in 1791. at Randolph, Vt., 
wrote that her father used and approved the English spelling of the name. 
Carelessness or laziness was the probable cause of the change, and there 
seems little doubt that the name should be written Wallbridge. 


In 1883 Mr. Paul Dewey Walbridge, of Boston, Mass.. sent me a letter, 
relating how he obtained the coat of arms that is regarded by many of the 
family as authentic, and also a description of the same. 



Since that time I have consulted all the books on heraldry attainable 
in the libraries of New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, without finding 
aught corroborative of the ancient glory, warlike deeds, or even existence 
of our mythical ancestor, "Sir William de Wallbridge." 

Recently, with the intention of producing the coat of arms, properly 
designed and colored, as a frontispiece to this book, and also as a check upon 
my own research, I sought the aid of an heraldic expert, who after looking 
thoroughly into the matter, wrote as follows : 

Philadelphia, Pa., April 4, 1898. 
W. G. Wallbridge, Esq. 

Dear Sir: — After spending considerable time in trying to get some 
data concerning the arms, etc., as portrayed by the enclosed photograph, I 
beg to say that my efiforts were unsuccessful, inasmuch as the name Wall- 
bridge or its synonyms do not appear in any form in any authorized publica- 
tion of Heraldry. 

I therefore return, as requested, the photo, and the description thereof, 
with assurance of my regrets at not being able to enlighten you more fully. 
I am, 

Very truly yours, 

Victor J. Petry. 

As the authenticity of the coat of arms has not been established, it was 
decided not to represent it otherwise than by the small cut shown under No. 
273, and to give the letter and description above referred to, which now 
follow : 

Boston, December 18, 1883. 
Mr. W. G. Wallbridge. 

Dear Sir: — In reply to your letter of December 6, I have to say that 
the coat of arms of the Walbridge family was painted for me by an English 
gentleman (I do not remember his name) in the winter of 1858. 

It came about in this way : Quite a number of Knights Templar of Bos 
ton had their family coat of arms painted, framed, and hung up over their 
stalls in the armory of the Commandery to which they belonged. Accord- 
ingly I inquired of him if he knew of any crest or coat of arms belonging to 
the Walbridge family. He informed me that he knew a great deal about it, 
as he made the acquaintance of a Mr. William Walbridge, of Canada, who 
called upon him in London, and they went together to the "Heraldry Col- 
lege" and looked the matter up. I think he made a specialty of looking up 


such matters, and he kindly wrote nie a description of the Walbridge coat of 
arms, etc., a copy of which I sent you. I saw him but a few times, as he was 
in Boston but two or three months, and then went to Canada to visit Mr. 
William Walbridge before mentioned. * * * 

Hastily yours, etc., 

P. D. Walbridge. 


Furnished by Paul D. Walbridge, of Boston, December 18, 1883. 

The family of Walbridge is of Saxon origin, and of great antiquity in 
the counties of Suffolk and Cambridge in England. 

Sir William de Walbridge accompanied King Richard Coeur de Lion to 
the Holy Land in the fourth Crusade or Holy War, and there greatly dis- 
tinguished himself. The arms borne by the Suffolk family of Walbridge 
have a reference to the above-named fact. 

The armorial bearings of Walbridge of Suffolk are : Or (gold) a cross 
quarter pierced sable (black) between four crescents gules (red), above all, a 
chief, thereon the cross pattee red, upon a white ground as a Knight of the 
Holy Temple, and upon the body of the arms the cross of Constantine as a 
Knight of the Red Cross. 

The arms are placed upon the Cross of the Knights of Malta, sur- 
rounded with the "Pater Noster," over all a coronet of Malta below the 
helmet of a Knight Templar, with the full mountings of that order of red 
doubled on lined white. Crest, out of a ducal coronet gold, a fawn's head 
argent (white). 

The black cross in the arms was given to those who participated in the 
fourth crusade; the crescents indicate that the ancestor to whom the arms 
were granted had fought against the Saracens. In the crest the ducal coro- 
net shows that an ancestor had served meritoriously under one of the con- 
federated ducal sovereigns of France, such as the Duke of Burgundy, etc. 
Motto : Fidei coticula crux (the cross is the test of faith).

In the County of Dorset, or Dorsetshire, as it is better known in Eng- 
land, there live to-day several branches of the Wallbridge family, and sum- 
ming up all the theories and traditions I have been able to gather, I am 
inclined to ascribe to Dorsetshire the origin of the thousands of Wallbridge 
descent that have ever been or are upon this western continent. 

Near the village of Piddleton, twelve miles from Wareham, and about 
six miles from Dorchester, the capital city of Dorset, is a gate known as the 
"Wallbridge Gate," the rendezvous and starting point for the Fox Hounds 

Piddleton is a small village with a population of some four hundred 
people, mainly dependent on agriculture; the thatched cottages with their 
little gardens, surrounded by hedges and overhung with trees, are pic- 
turesque, and through the town flows the small river Trent or Piddle. The 
church of St. Mary's is very ancient, and a search of its records would 
probably throw light upon the older generations of the family. 

At Frome Station, Somersetshire, on the Great Western Railway, there 
is a place called Wallbridge. 

The Genealogist, New Series, Vol. I, 1884, p. 91, says: "In an old quarto 
Bible, printed by Robert Barker in 1614, there is written on the fly leaves 
the following record: Anthony Noble died 10 March, 1616, married Ursula 

, who died 6 Sept., 1635. Their sonne Nathaniel was baptized ye 12 

Nov., A. D. 1578, m. with Mary Wallbridge the 24 July, 1619. he died June 6, 
1654, she d. Feb. 10, 1627, had dau. Mary, b 19 Sept., 1621. Tilsworth, 
Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, Eng." 

On p. 175 of Young's Chronieles of Mass., in part of the Company's 2d 
general letter of instructions to Gov. Endicott and his Council, under date 
of 28 May, 1629, we find the following: 

"We send you also herewith a particular of all the goods and cattle sent 
in these forenamed ships, as also of what goods, cattle or other provisions 



^ve now send upon these three ships, viz.. The Mayflower of Yarmouth, Wil- 
liam Peirse, master. The Four Sisters of London, Roger Harmon, master. 
The Pilgrim of London, WiUiam Wohridge, master." The first mentioned 
is the renowned vessel that brought the Pilgrim Fathers to Plj'mouth in 
1620, and there has been some speculation as to whether the master of the 
third vessel was a Wallbridge. The earliest mention I have found of a Wall- 
bridge in this country is Sept. i, 1655, on which date James W. signed as 
witness to a deed conveying shares in the iron works at Taunton, Mass. I 
have endeavored to trace this person, but without success, as the Taunton 
records were burned in 1842, and I have found nothing elsewhere. In the 
A'^. E. Gen. and Hist. Reg., Vol. XLL P- 85. may be seen a fac simile of his 
signature written Wabridge. In old London, running from Mansion House 
to West Cannon Street, is a street now called Wallbrook or Wallburg Street, 
which on the city maps of 18 10- 15 was Wallbridge Street, and is still so 
known by many; a further account of this will be found under William Hol- 
loway Wallbridge, Jr. (683). 

At Arreton, Isle of Wight, the parish records under date of Oct. 19, 
1762, show the marriage of Joseph Wallbridge and Elizabeth Elfe. These 
were the parents of Elizabeth Wallbridge, who, as "The Dairyman's Daugh- 
ter," became widely known through the tract written by the Rev. Leigh 
Richmond and translated into many languages. The thatched cottage in 
which they lived still stands on the right of the road leading from Newport 
to Sandown, and in the cemetery may be seen a stone commemorating at 
length the virtues of the Dairyman's daughter. (See English notes.) 

The following shows how little tradition can be relied upon unless sup- 
ported by records : 

One of the family wrote in 1869 in response to some inquiry: "From 
this maiden aunt (born in 1/68) I learned that my grandfather came from 
Wales, and settled first in Norwich, Conn., and moved thence to Bennington, 
where he raised his family and died in 181 1." 

Records show that the said grandfather was born in Norwich, Conn., 
was himself the grandson of Henry Wallbridge, our first American ancestor, 
and died in 1809 instead of 181 1. See also No. 224. 

Many statements like the above have been carefully studied and com- 
pared with authentic records, and the time and labor needed have been con- 


3- .1 






Norwich, Conn., was originally a tract nine miles square, bought by the 
proprietors from the Indians June 6, 1659. At the town-plot centered for 
many years the religious and social life of the settlement, and there the first 
meeting-house in Norwich was built in 1660, upon the southeast corner of 
the green. In 1673 another was erected upon the rocky ledge shown at the 
left of the church, a location doubtless chosen for the opportunity it afforded 
of keeping a lookout for the savages during divine service. From this site 
was taken the view looking toward the Norwich of to-day, which follows 
that of the church and ledge. 171 2 and 1752 saw the erection of succeeding 
houses of worship, the last of which was burned in 1801, and replaced by 
the one shown in the cut. 

The two elms reproduced stand in front of the house built in 1785 by 
Daniel Lothrop Coit. Miss Caulkins, in her Hist, of Norzvich, tells of Jabez 
Perkins bringing them home on his shoulders from the forest about 1755, 
while O. W. Holmes, at the close of his charming talk on trees in the Autocrat 
of the Breakfast Table, speaks of them (p. 333, Ed. of 1859), and Mrs. Sigour- 
ney wrote of them : 

"I do remember me 
Of two old elm trees' shade. 
With mosses sprinkled at their feet, 
Where my young childhood played." 

Henry Wallbridge, of Norwich, Conn., who on Christmas Day, 1C88, 
m. at Preston, Conn., Anna Amos of that place, was the common ancestor 
of the American and Canadian branches of the family. His wife's family 



name was sometimes written Ames, and occasionally so used by his de- 
scendants as a Christian name. Concerning his own ancestry little has been 
learned, but by traditions received from his direct descendants, he came from 
Wales, Ireland, Scotland, and some five different counties in England. Mr. 
Asa Fobes Wallbridge, of Canada, wrote about 1868: "My father took a 
catalogue of my grandfather (Elijah, b. 1752, d. 1842), of all the Wallbridges 
from their first landing in America until his time, that was written in a book, 
and the book was given to my sister. She lives in Illinois, and the book 
is probably lost." 

Study and comparison of the various accounts give the following as the 
most probable : 

Henry Wallbridge, a seventh son, with his brothers William and 
Stephen, were from the County of Devon, or else from near Wareham in 
Dorsetshire, southern part of England; the latter statement being supported 
by the fact that in Dorsetshire, Wallbridges are now living who trace their 
ancestry back for many generations, and report that some of their kin came 
to this country in early days. 

The three brothers are said to have fought with the Duke of Monmouth 
in his rebellion against King James the Second, and after the defeat of the 
rebel army at Sedgemoor, July 5, 1685, to have fled to this country, thus 
escaping trial and almost certain death at the hands of that human tiger, the 
notorious Judge Jeffreys. 

They settled first at Dedham, Mass., where, however, no record of them 
can be found, and thence went to Preston, Conn., adjacent to Norwich. 
William, unmarried, was thrown from his horse and killed soon after coming 
to this country. Stephen changed his name to Stephen Meech, taking, it is 
said, his mother's maiden name, and has many descendants, among whom 
Wallbridge is frequently used as a middle name. Of this branch I have col- 
lected a few notes which I will append as a starting point for further work in 
that direction. Henry Wallbridge we find first mentioned at Preston, Conn., 
where the town records show his marriage Dec. 25, 1688, a date agreeing 
well with that of his supposed coming to America. 

His name appears on a list of a meeting of the inhabitants of Ouine- 
baug, held Nov. 13, 1699. He was an accepted inhabitant of Norwich in 
1702, and in 1718, his name is recorded among those of sixteen "Farmers 
in Ye Crotch of Ye Rivers," meaning the tract of land lying in the fork of 
the rivers Shetucket and Quinebaug, about three miles above where the junc- 
tion of the former with the Yantic produces the Thames (see frontispiece). 
A most beautiful locality, and originally a part of the Mohegan territory, 
being granted in 1669 by the town of Norwich to Awaneco, a Sachem of a 


tribe tributary to Uncas, and known as the Showtuckets, who first disposed 
of their rights to white settlers in 1680. Here our ancestor hved a yeoman's 
hfe, cuhivating his land, wliich embraced many acres, as shown by various 
deeds made during the later years of his life, conveying portions of his estate 
to his sons, whose names as well as his own frequently appear upon the town 
records and those of the First Congregational Society of Norwich. After his 
death his sons moved northward into Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, 
and the Canadas, whence in after years their sons in turn entered the wilder- 
ness, to do their share in the work of developing the resources of the country.

Hugh Amos, father of Anna Amos, who m. Henry Wallbridge, was a 
freeman at Boston, Mass., 1666, and belonged to the 2d Ch., where his son 
John was bapt. (Saz'agcs Diet.) 

He went to Norwich, Conn., where he executed a deed in 1677, and 
bought land from the Indians Dec. 11, 1683. His name also appears on 
the Preston T. R. Feb. 10, 1G86, as one of the original grantees of the town, 
and to-day designates one of the beautiful ponds near by. 

P. T. R. show a deed to him from Thomas Lefifingwell April 21, 1686, 
and one from the Sachem Owanoco, dated March 14, 1687. 

The following deed, copied from P. T. R., where it is entered Oct. 17. 
1700, shows clearly the connection between the families of Wallbridge and 
Amos :

personally appered and acknowledged" a deed similar to the last and to Sall- 
mon Treat, clargyman, of a 1 10 acres, more or less, consideration £80. This

of Preston, his right in the Preston commons, "given to me by my father 
Hugh Amos as will appere by will." 

Sept. 6, 1705, is the date of Hugh Amos' will, which was recorded at 
New London, Conn.. Feb. 2, 1708, and mentions eldest son John, son 
Samuel, dau. Anna, and dau. Mary, who m. Benj. Howard, and gets only 
£29 — 19, because of her husband's "business carriage" toward his father in 
law. His estate was valued at £410, and comprised 570 acres of land with 
buildings. P. T. R. give death of Hugh Dec. 4, 1707, and of his wife Han-

Christian name among Henry Wallbridge's descendants.

will of Mrs. Anna Wallbridge, late of Norwich, dec'd, who was Henry's wife

wich, Conn. The names of his first three chi. are on P. T. R. Thomas 
is named in his will, and the N. T. R. give births of the others. The records 
of the old First Church of Stonington, Conn., give the following baptisms 
by the Rev. James Noyes: Sept. 20, 1691, William; Oct. 15, 1694, Amos; 
Sept. 26, 1697, Henry, all sons of Henry Wallbridge. In a letter of Miss 
Frances Caulkins, of Norwich, written April 13, 1868, to Mr. T. C. Wall- 
bridge, of Belleville, Can., she says: "A Norwich paper of Jan., iSoo, gives 
in a list of deaths Mrs. Wallbridge, aged 94." This would make her born 
in 1706, and probably she was a dan. -in-law of Henry.

1735, at Stafford, Conn., Amos, Senr., recorded as of Canterbury, Wind- 
ham Co., Conn., bought of Timothy Pierce two lots of fifty acres each for

said society be divided into two societies." 

1744. — His name appears as subscriber to twelve copies of the Nat. and

May 7, 1752, Ebenezer and Elizabeth, his wife, gave a deed to Ebenezer 
Thomas in consideration of £516 (N. T. R.). No record has been found at 
Norwich or elsewhere of the death of either Ebenezer or his wife Elizal)eth. 
and we can only surmise that they probably moved away with their children 
on their way northward.

John was apparently unable to write, as a deed on record at Norwich. 
Conn., made by him to Aaron Read Oct. 26, 1738, is signed John X his mark. 

Jcjhn W., Sr., was buried in Coventry, near the Hop River. The stone 
has the following epitaph : 

d. July 10, 1849, in ye 80th year of his age. 

"Thus do my moldering members teach 
What now your senses learn, 
For dust and ashes loudest preach 
Man's infinite concern." 



The New Ent. Ch. records show baptisms of John's chi. as follows: 

William, May 21, 1738; John, April 13, 1740; Samuel, Oct. 31, 1742; 
and the So. Coventry records state that Isaac and Hannah were born at 
Preston, so John, Sr., must have been there as late as 1748, removing thence 
to Coventry, Conn., where the T. R. give birth of the last five chi. 

In May, 1754, the Conn. Assembly acted "Upon the memorial of John 
Wallbridge of Coventry shewing to this Assembly that he has for a long time 
labored under great bodily difficulties by reason of broken bones, and is likely 
to continue a cripple for the future, and thereupon praying to have his poll 
exempted, etc. Resolved by this Assembly that the poll of the said John 
Wallbridge be and the same is hereby exempted from being taxed for the 
payment of any public rates or taxes in this colony." The sons John and

ZEBULON^ {William,'^ Henry'), h. July 17, 1718, at Norwich, Conn. 
(N. T. R.), d. April 27, i8o9,at Stamford, N. Y., m. Jan. 27, 1742-3 (P. T. R.), 
at Preston, Conn., Sarah, dau. of Caleb and Abigail (Gates) Fobes. She was 
b. Sept. 3, 1718 (P. T. R.), at Preston, Conn., d. March 19, 1795, at Stam- 
ford, N. Y. After her death Zebulon m. Sarah Filkins. 

Dec. 3, 1 741, Zebulon and John gave a deed to John Read, "conveying 
all that farm or tract of land wh. was our Honored Father's William Wall- 
bridge late of Norwich deed and being in New Ent in Norwich * * * set 
our hands and seals in the 15th year of the Reign of our Sovereign Lord 
Geo. ye 2nd of Great Britain &c King." 

Feb. 12, 1746-7. — Zebulon Walbridge, of Preston, for £250 old Tenor 
unto Thomas Bailey conveys "one Certain parsel of Land with a Dwelling 
house, orcharding and fenceing thereon — Situate in Preston aforesaid, butted 
and bounded as follows. Namely, Beginning at a peace a punk or hot house 
at Patchague River being ye Southwesterly Corner of Land belonging to 
Israel Herrick, thence upstream Sd River about Six Rods to a Large white 
Oak tree thence * * * Northward of a Pople tree the Northwest corner of 
John Walbridge's Land. * * * ." This deed witnessed by Ebenezer Wal- 

March 28, 1749. — Zebulon has a deed made to him by "John Wal- 
bridge, Caleb Fobes and Ede his wife all of Preston. Zebulon Button and 
Sybal his wife of Stonington, and John Ford Junr. and Eunice his wife of 
Norwich for £15. to us paid by our brother Zebulon Walbridge of Preston." 
John, Sibyl and Eunice make their mark, the others sign. In 1784 Zebulon 
was deprived by an Act of the N. Y. Legislature of all his rights, privileges 
and innnunities as a citizen, owing to his views and actions in regard to war 
with Gt. Britain. 

In 1786 he had his civil rights restored on taking the oath of abjuration 
and allegiance. 

Zebulon, after selling his property at Norwich, moved with his family 
to the township of Stamford, Dutchess Co., N. Y., where they remained until 
the Revolution, when Zebulon and his son Asa fled to Long Island, which 


was then under protection of the British, while the other children with their 
mother remained on the farm. Fearing, however, that in case the British 
were defeated, they being Tories would lose their land, they sold it, divided 
the money, and rented farms until after the Revolution, when Elijah bought 
a farm in Milton Township, Saratoga Co., N. Y. ; Elias one in Stamford, 
Dutchess Co., N. Y.; Zebulon one in North East, Dutchess Co., N. Y., while 
Asa wandered through Nova Scotia and the Canadas. 

North East is now divided into three townships, Milan, Vine Plain 
and North East, all in Dutchess Co. The part where Zebulon lived is near 
the river and about the centre of what is now Milan. 

Zebulon, as mentioned elsewhere, changed the spelling of his name, say- 
ing one "1" was enough; he was a poor boy, and used to work by the month, 
but married into a wealthy family; was by profession a Baptist. He and his 
first wife are both buried in the same burying ground on the borders of 
Stamford, N. Y. His second wife survived him, but no record of her is 
known. Another account of Zebulon says he was buried in the Red Baptist 
Meeting House at Stamford, Dutchess Co., N. Y., and his funeral sermon 
was preached by J. Hill, a Quaker. 

Asa, the unmarried son of Zebulon, was the first to leave the U. S. for 
the Canadas. He went to the Province of New Brunswick, where he settled 
on the Jimsac River, near Frederickton, the present capital. Here he cleared 
his farm and built a saw-mill on a creek known to this day as Wallbridge 
Creek. After some years he made his way apparently up the St. Lawrence 
River to the Bay of Quinte (an arm of Lake Ontario) in Upper Canada, now 
the Province of Ontario, where most of the descendants of his bro. Elijah 
now live, and where he became well known as a dealer and fur trader. After 
living some years at Meyer's Creek, or river (called Belleville since 1816), 
where he owned over 2000 acres of land, and finding the country fair and 
pleasant to dwell in, he wrote for his brother Elijah and family, who joined 
him, Wm. Holloway Wallbridge in 1797 or 1798, the others apparently at 
different times. In a small book called First Things in Canada, we find 
"The first white settler in Belleville, Upper Canada, was a fur dealer named 
Wallbridge in 1797." 

Asa was a man of good education, and ran for Member of the First Par- 
liament of Upper Canada to sit at Niagara in 1792, but was defeated by a 
small number of votes, a wagon load of his opponents coming in just at tlie 
close of the polls. He died at Freedy's on the farm on Massasauga Point, 
and was buried in a family burying ground on the large tract of land in 
Ameliasburg. It is probably this Asa who took the oath of allegiance noted 
in Calendar of N. Y. Hist. Manuscripts, Etc., Vol. II, Rev'y. papers, p. 164.

AMOS^' {Amos,- Hcnry^), b. Dec. 15, 1727, at Norwich, Conn. (T. R.), 
bapt. the same month at Lisbon (C. R.), d. Oct. 24, 1793, at Stafford, Conn. 

He m. prior to 1751, Margaret , who was b. 1727 and d. Aug. 13, 

1794. at Stafford. The Col. Records of Conn, state that Amos Walbridge 
of Stafiford, was appointed Ensign of a co. in the ist regt. May, 1759, and 
Vol. XIII, says, "This Assembly do establish Mr. Amos Walbridge to be 
capt. of 17th CO. or train band in the 5th regt. in this colony." Records of 


Conn. Men in the Rev., Etc., credit Amos on the Lexington Alarm list with 19 
days' service as Captain from Stafford. His name also occurs as Capt. on a 
list of ofificers of the 25th regt. Cont. Army (May to July, 1775), the original 
in the possession of Henry Bond, M. D., of Phila., Pa., while Heitman, in his 
Hist. Reg. of Officers of Cont. Army, says he was Capt. of Brewer's Mass. regt. 
May to Dec, 1775 (see Mass. Archives, Vol. LIV), and summarizes his record 
as follows: Capt. in the Lexington Alarm, April, 1775; Capt. 13th Conn. 
Infty., Jan. i to Dec. 31, 1776; Capt. 7th Conn., Jan. i, 1777; Major 2d 
Conn., May 27, 1777; retired Jan. i, 1781. (See also Conn, in the Rev.) 

"The 2d Regt. Conn, line, formation of 1777-1781, was raised early in 
1777 for the new army of Continental line, recruited at large throughout the 
State. Ordered to assemble at Danbury in April, preparatory to taking the 
field, and soon after went into camp at Peekskill. Served during the sum- 
mer and fall of 1777 along the Hudson under Putnam; ordered Nov. 14 to 
join Washington's army in Pa., and on Dec. 8 engaged in the sharp action 
of Whitemarsh, where it lost a number of ofificers and men, killed and 
wounded. Wintered at Valley Forge, 1777- 1778, and was present, July 28 
following, at the Battle of Monmouth. Assigned to Second Conn. Brigade, 
Huntington's, at Camp White Plains; wintered 1778-1779 with the Division 
at Redding. Served on east side of Hudson in Gen. Heath's wing during 
operations of 1779; the Light Co. under Capt. Ten Eyck detached to Meig's 
Light Regt. and engaged in storming of Stony Point, July 15, 1779. Win- 
tered 1 779-1 780 at Morristown, and served on the outposts; in 1780 with 
the main army along the Hudson. Wintered 1 780-1 781 above the Robinson 
House, Hudson River, and then reorganized for the next formation. On 
the field and staff was Major Ames Walbridge, from Stafford, Conn., pro- 
moted from Capt. 7th Regt. Commission dates May 27, 1777; retired 
by consolidation Jan. i, 1781. In service from 1775." 


Among the original members of the Connecticvit Cincinnati Society, as 
entered in the society's records, now in the possession of the Conn. Hist. 
Soc. at Hartford, Conn., appears the name of Ames Walbridge, Major from 
Stafford, Conn., in service April, 1775, to Jan., 1781, subscribing to the fol- 
lowing oath : 

"We the subscribers, officers of the American Army, do hereby volun- 
tarily become parties to the aforegoing Institution, and do bind ourselves 
to observe and be governed by the principles therein contained, for the per- 
formance whereof we do pledge to each other our Sacred Honor." 


Mrs. Sherman Converse, great-granddau. of Amos and a graiuUlau. of 
Porter W. and Miriam McClure, writes, Aprii, 1895, "I remember people 
used to come to my father's when I was a child, to see the roll of Major Amos 
W.'s CO. In 1876 that roll was given to the town of Stafford. I don't know 
about the first wife, but the second was a Widow Walbridge, of Wales, 

Although the name of the dau. born June 22, 1768, is not given on the 
town records, she was doubtless Theodia, who was bapt. April 23, 1769. 

Stafford Church records show April 23, 1769, the bapt. of a chi. of Lieu- 
tenant Ames W., called Theoda, and the town records, Feb. 4, 1773, the 
death of William, son of Capt. Ames W. Sept. 29, 1777, Capt. Ames W. 
took the oath of fidelity, and April 11, 1785, Porter W. did the same. 

Charity was bapt. April 24, 1757, admitted to Communion April 7, 1776. 
A child of hers named Joseph was b. June 2, 1776. 

Temple's Hist, of Palmer, Mass., p. 171, says : 

"In Congress, June 17, 1775, 'ordered that commissions be delivered 
to the several officers within named.' " On the list of company ofificers are 
Capt. Amos Walbridge, of Stafford, Conn., and Ensign James Blodgett — 61 
men, 51 arms. 

Stafford Church records show the following entries: 

Oct. 24, 1793, Major Ames Wallbridge died, aged 65 years and 8 or 9 

Aug. 13. 1794, Mrs. Margaret Wallbridge, relict of the late Major Wall- 
bridge, died, aged 67 years and about 8 months.

WILLIAM* {Amos,^ Henry^), h. Dec. 12, 1730, at Norwich, Conn. 
(T. R.), bapt. at Lisbon (C. R.), Dec. 30, 1730, was probably the William 
who m. Esther Shaw and lived at Wales, Mass., concerning whom Absolom 
Gardner, in his pamphlet on Wales, says: "The Walbridge families here 
have not been many, nor very much distinguished. William W. was the 
progenitor of all others of the name here living. Time of his first coming is 


not ascertained. Esther Shaw, said to have been a niece of Seth Shaw, made 
his first companion. They had several children, quarreled, separated; he 
went to Stafford, and there stayed some years. There he and his wife are 
said to have been divorced. After that he returned hither with another wife 
and family of children; remained and died here in May, 1807, aged 76. His 
second wife was Rebecca, dau. of Jonathan Moulton, whose settlement here 
has been briefly noticed. He abode and died upon what is hereinbefore 
designated as the Walbridge place, in the southwest part of the town. 
Ames Walbridge, son of William by his second wife, succeeded his father 
as owner and occupant of the paternal homestead, whereon he died 27 July 
185 1, aged 69. In midlife he was reckoned among the most prominent and 
substantial of our town's farming population." 

Of the chi. by the second wife, seven were born at Stafford, Conn., 
where the T. R. give vi. as Mary. The years are illegible on the books, and 
are supplied from other sources; the last chi., Asenath, was born at Wales,

Conn.(T. R.), by Rev. Eli Cotton, to James, chi. of Joshua and (Morse) 

Blodgett. He was b. Dec. 21, 1723, at Monson, Mass.; d. March 20, 1817, 
at Ascot, Can. He was an Ensign in the Revolution, and after the war re- 
moved to Randolph, Vt. "Blodgett, James, of Monson, sergt. Capt. Freeborn

HENRy (Amos,- Hcnry^), b. Nov. 10, 173S, at Stafford, Conn.; d. 
-, 1818, at Randolph Vt., m. , 1762, Martha Read, b. Sept. 26, 

1743, at Sudbury, ^TtT. 1812-3, at Randolph, Vt. She was the dau. of 
Nathaniel Read, b. Oct. 6, 1702 (son of Thomas and Mary, of Sudbury) and 
Phrebe Lamb. Sprague Arnold, a grandson of Henr>, writes, Sept. 4, 1883, 
from North Randolph, Vt., as follows: "Yours dated Aug. 14 is received, 
requesting information in regard to Capt. Henry Waibridge. He was my 
maternal grandfather. I have often heard him relate incidents of the French 
and Revolutionary Wars, for he was in both. He received the title of Cap- 
tain after the Revolutionary War closed, at the time the Indians destroved 
Royalton, in Vermont. If I mistake not his native "State was Connecticut. 
When he moved his family from there to Randolph, Vt., it made the seventh 
in the town. He made his pitch, as he called it, in the unbroken forest of 
two hundred acres of land, built a log house, and cleared up a splendid farm. 
He died, if I am not mistaken, 1818, having entered his 80th year. He mar- 
ried a lady by the name of Martha Read, a native of the same State as him- 
self. She died some five or six years previous to his decease. Amos, the 
youngest child of Capt. Henry W. and father of Levi, whom you saw in 


Boston, lived with his father during his life, several years after disposed of the 
farm and subsequently removed to Boston, Mass., where he d. June 23, 1868, 
was born April 21, 1785, was considered a man of strict integrity. With 
respect to Capt. Henry W. being sergeant in the Continental troops, I know 
nothing about it; never heard him speak of it. If there is any further infor- 
mation that I can give you in your undertaking, will do it with pleasure." 
He writes again, Oct. 18, 1883, "The date of my aunt's marriages or my 
father's, whose name was Sprague Arnold, I have no record or knowledge of. 
Am Rebecca's only child; she died Dec. 22, 1836. I find by examining old 
documents, which has caused the delay in my answer, that the Indians burnt 
Royalton on the i6th of Oct., 1780." 

A mem. in a family Bible owned by Percy E. Walbridge, of Boston, 
Mass., and a g. g. son of Henry, says Rebecca m. Bezar Lee Bradford, which 
would seem an error from above letters, or that Bradford was her first hus- 
band. (See 178.)

Amos, he at Randolph, Vt.

Henry Walbridge, with his wife and children, Solomon, Anna, and Silas, 
probably came to Bennington with the Saffords in 1761, certainly before 
Feb., 1764, when his dau. Lucy was born. His house was built in 1768, 
possibly earlier. 

March 28, 1764. — Henry was chosen selectman, and the same day they 
voted that "Hogs shall not run at large from April to the 15th of Oct. and 
to give the Selectmen 3 shillings a day for the year past." 

Aug. 29, 1765. — United with the church at Bennington. 

Doc. Hist, of N. Y., Vol. IV, p. 361, Dec. 18, 1765, a report is made to 
"Sir Henry Moore Bart. Capt. General, Governor in chief over the Province 
of New York &c &c., of the names of those living on several townships in 
the N. H. grants." In the Bennington list of those who settled "before the 
first of June Last Past" is the name of Henry Walbridge. 

Ibid, p. 620, we find the names of Henry Walbridge and of Henry Wal- 
bridge, Jun., among signers to a petition to the King (Geo. Ill) of Nov., 
1766, begging for relief from the heavy taxes laid by New York on those 
who settled the N. H. Grants. "Your humble Petitioners conceive that the 
insisting to have large and exorbitant Fees * * * is without all reasonable 
and equitable Foundation, and must and will necessarily terminate in the 
totally preventing your Petitioners obtaining the said Lands, and so the 
same will fall into the Hands of the Rich to be taken up, * * * while your 


Petitioners with their numerous and helpless families, will be obliged to 
wander far and wide to find where to plant themselves down, so as to be able 
to live," after all which humbleness they decided to hold their grounds by 
force of arms, having nine-tenths of the law on their side, and did so success- 
fully. {Fide Calendar N. Y. Hist. Manuscripts, 1664-1776, pp. 28-78; N. Y.

''Henry Walbridge, always called Uncle Henry, was a positive, staunch 
man, a strong pillar in the first church organized in Bennington, Vt., with 
which he united Aug. 29, 1765, and where his chi. were baptized as follows: 
33 Feb., 1766, Solomon, Silas, Anna, Lucy; 23 Aug., 1767, Esther; i July, 
1770, David, and 5 Sept., 1773, Sarah and Mary. 

Jedidiah Dewey, the first minister of said church, had come into posses- 
sion of a colored boy, in whom he claimed some kind of ownership. 

■::..S NEW YORK 











Organized 1762 

At Bennington Centre, Vt. 

Tlie first meeting-house was occupied in or before 1766, 
and the second and present one shown on the opposite page, 
was buih in 1805. In the cemetery just at the left of the 
church are buried thirteen of the Walbridge family, while 
others lie in the cemeteries at Bennington and Paper Mill 

Joseph Safiford, one of the founders of the church, had 
been a deacon of the New Ent (now Lisbon) Society, near 
Norwich, Conn., of which society Ebenezer, the father of Gen- 
eral Ebenezer Walbridge, was also a member. 

The records of the New Ent Church were brought to 
Bennington by Deacon Safford, and for many years remained 
in the possession of his family. Loaned to the Rev. Mr. Jen- 
nings during the writing of his Memorials of a Century, they 
were returned to their owner, Mrs. Cogswell Morgan, and from 
her obtained by Deacon Alfred Robinson "to keep with the 
church records." Since then they have been sought in vain, 
but it is hoped they will reappear. 


The State of New York was at that time a slave State, and claimed juris- 
diction over what is now Vermont. Uncle Henry told Parson Dewey that 
he should never partake of the Sacrament from his hand so long as he 
claimed to own one drop of that colored boy's blood. He was as good as 
his word, and the parson had to yield all claim of ownership." This same 
Parson Dewey built the first house in the old town of Bennington, now 
known as Bennington Centre. The house is still standing (1898), and the 
Parson's tombstone can be seen in the first row of those near the old white 
church. The inscription is worth copying, the more so as Mr. Dewey often 
used the concluding lines in his funeral sermons, and requested that they be 
put over his dust :

Gospel Ministry, Resigned his Of^ce in God's Temple For the

Mrs. Isaac L. Miller writes in Oct., 1892: "I also spent some time in 
examining records at the town clerk's of^ce in Bennington a year ago last 
summer, and discovered much of interest pertaining to my great-grandfather, 
Henry Walbridge, concerning whom little was said in Dr. Jennings' work, 
owing, I presume, to the fact that none of his descendants live in Bennington 
at this time. He was a prominent actor in the resistance made to the 'York- 
ers' prior to the Revolution, and was one of the six men for whose capture 
the Gov. of N. Y. offered a reward. The old house built by him, and after- 
ward occupied by his son Silas, and known by his name, still stands out of the 
town in an excellent state of preservation, and unaltered. It was built in 
1768, and is therefore one of the oldest and most interesting on that account 
in that locality." 

A descendant writes: "I have thought of one or two incidents respect- 
ing that old Aunt Esther (she always insisted her name was Easter and would 
answer to no other title), who gave the account of the battle of Bennington. 
She was of a most peculiar disposition, not very agreeable I am afraid. She 
lived and died an old maid, always declaring that she refused many good 
ofTers, among them a son of 'Old Put,' but preferred independence. When 


the old home was broken up she went to Cambridge, Vt., to Uve with her 
brother Solomon. After the famil}- hegira to Western N. Y. she became 
very restless and determined to join them. It being a long and expensive 
journey, her friends opposed her, but she, with true Walbridge grit, said she 
woukl go if she had to walk. No one supposed she would do so, but she 
actually did walk from Vermont to Genesee Co., N. Y. I do not know how 
long it took her, or how she accomplished it, for she was then considerably 
over fifty years old. Some old people in Bennington remembered her and 
spoke of this singular journey. I am afraid her relatives at the end of the 
route were not particularly pleased to see her; her eccentricities of temper 
and character was so great; however, she never went back, but died in Buf- 
falo, N. Y., in 1841. I can just remember a very little woman with very 
white hair and very black eyes. She left some old silver belonging to her 
parents' wedding outfit, and some old deeds of property in Bennington; also 
the will of Henry, her father, which relics are in the hands of the members of 
the family. She told us that her father and his sons Solomon and Silas were 
in the battle of Bennington, and that toward dusk her mother's anxiety 
became so great that she sent her, a girl of nine, to watch for news by the 
roadside. It is a retired spot even now, about two miles south of the vil- 
lage. There she sat on a large rock by the wayside, and as one neighbor 
after another hurried by, interrogated them, but all was confusion, and none 
knew how the day had fared. At last she saw a man riding rapidly up the 
road on a white horse stained with blood. He shouted, 'The British are 
beaten !' but could give news only of the brothers." 

Another g.-g. dau. of Henry writes: "My g.-g. father and his sons Solo- 
mon and Silas were at the battle. Henry carried a cane, which is now in 
possession of the family, and after the fighting, while looking for the boys, 
he found five Hessian soldiers hidden in a potato pit, and marched them in 
as prisoners. He said he had been busy for hours carrying the wounded, 
I think to the church on the hill. Another Henry Walbridge was killed in 
the battle, and for some time it was thought to be the husband and father, 
so great rejoicing took place when finally the absentees returned safe and 
sound. My aunt, Mrs. Beebe, said she could remember Henry and Col. 
Ebenezer as old men sitting on the porch, smoking and fighting their battles 
o'er and o'er." 


In the cemetery at Bennington Centre are the following epitaphs : 
Sacred to the Memory 

of Mr. Henry Walbridge who died Sept. i, 1809 ge 82 y & 8 m. 
having resided in Bennington 47 years, through his whole life 
supported a fair reputation, and under his charitable roof the 
afflicted found friendship. 

But yet the debt of nature must be paid, by which we learn 
the following lesson 

"Death's terror is the mountain Faith removes 

'"Tis Faith disarms destruction 

"Believe and look with triumph on the tomb. 

Sacred to the Memory 

of Mrs. Anna Walbridge, eldest daughter of Deacon Joseph 
Safiford, widow of Mr. Henry Walbridge. She was one of 
the first settlers of this town, an early member of the church, 
who lived beloved and respected and departed this life greatly 
lamented on the 31st Dec. 18 17 in the 88th year of her age. 

"When Faith presents the Savior's death 
"And whispers this is thine 
"Sweetly my rising hours advance 
"And peacefully decline.

No trace can be found of any portrait or likeness of General Ebenezer 
Walbridge, so his descendants must be content with his deeds as taken from 
the records of his time. 

In the cemetery of "The First Church of Christ," at Bennington Centre, 
is the following inscription : 

In Memory of Genl. Ebenezer Walbridge who departed 
this life Oct. the 3rd 1819 in the 82nd year of his age. 

He was an affectionate Husband an indulgent Farther 
& a Friend to all mankind. He died in the full belief of a 
glorious Resurrection in and through the Atonement of Jesus 
Christ our Lord. 

In the cemetery of Paper Mill Village, near the old homestead, we find 
this inscription : 

In Memory of Mrs Elizabeth Walbridge Consort of the 
late Genl. Ebenezer Walbridge deed who departed this life on 
the 24th of Sept. 1822 in the 87th year of her age. 

She's gone, she's gone to Reims above, 

Where Saints and Angels meet. 
To realize her Savior's love 

And worship at his feet. 

The name of Ebenezer Walbridge appears on the Georgia, Vt., T. R. 
as one of the original grantees of the town Aug. 17, 1763; also as having 
been paid one pound for killing five snakes. 

A town meeting was called in Northfield, Mass., August, 1761, to con- 
sider the question of building a new meeting-house. Stone for the founda- 
tions was drawn and laid, and the "raising" took place early in the siunmer 
of 1763. 

As refreshments the committee supplied 2 bbls. N. E. rum at a cost of 
£9 — 2 — 4 and 4 Galls. West India rum at 8 shillings a gallon. The work 
seems to have dragged along (perhaps owing to the stimulus supplied), for 


under date of August, 1767, the town has a receipt from Ebenezer Walbridge 
for £14 — 8 "in full for work done at Meeting House." 

March 4, 1766. — The town "voted and chose Ebr. Harvey and Ebr. 
Walbridge surveyors of lumber." March 2, 1767, "voted and chose Pedajah 
Field and Ebenezer Walbridge wardens." March 5, 1770, "voted a bounty 
of sixpence per head for every old crow and three pence for every young 
crow killed within the bounds of the town of Northfleld." 

Bennington was the first town settled in Vermont west of the Green 
Mts., and its charter is the oldest in the State. The town was named for 
Benning Wentworth, then Royal Governor of N. H., surveyed in Nov., 1749, 
and the charter granted the following March. The name of Ebenezer Wal- 
bridge appears in 1770 upon the town records, from which is taken the fol- 
lowing curious specimen of sanitary legislation : 

"Feb. 10, 1777, it was voted at a town meeting to establish a pest house 
for small-pox patients, and to prevent the spread of the disease, it was de- 
clared by vote that any person who should presume to have the infection 
on either of the several main roads through the town should be liable to pay 
a penalty of twenty pounds, and any person who without license from the 
Committee should give or take the infection, or having it should go more 
than 30 rods from the pest house, he should forfeit the like sum of twenty 
pounds." In 1800 the question of vaccination was first introduced into the 
town meeting and met with considerable opposition. 

Most of the entries under dates are from Governors and Councils of Ver- 

March 28, 1770. — Ebenezer W. chosen "Cullor of Shingles." 

January, 1776. — Col. Warner's Reg't of Green Mt. boys was ordered 
to Quebec. 

March 3, 1776. — And a record of that year on a fragment of original 
muster roll still in existence shows Ebenezer to have served as ist Lieut, 
in Capt. Gideon Brownson's co. and as Adjt. of the Regiment. 

July 5, 1776. — It was resolved that a regt. be raised out of the officers 
who served in Canada, and he was commissioned ist Lieut, in Col. Seth 
Warner's Regt. 

Sept. 23, 1776. — At a town meeting of Bennington, Vt., it was "voted 
to raise money as an encouragement for those that may enlist in the service 
of guarding the frontier towns on the grant. 3rdly. To raise £90. for the 
above purpose, viz 40 shillings per man." 

October, 1776. — Ebenezer was ist Lieut, in Capt. Elijah Dewey's com- 
pany at Fort Ticonderoga, as shown by a paper found among Capt. Dewey's 
effects, called "Pay roll of Capt. Elijah Dewey's company in Col. Moses 


Robinson's Regt. of the Mililia in tlie service of the U. S. of America, Mount 
Independence, 1776." This roll shows EHjah Dewey to be Capt. and 
Ebenezer Walbridge First Lieut, of the co. while in service near Fort Ticon- 
deroga, which was then threatened with attack. On dismissing the regt. 
Gen. Gates wrote a letter Nov. 9, 1776, to Col. Robinson, which is quoted 
in the Vcr. Hist. Mag., p. 153. (See also the pay roll reproduced in this 

March 26, 1777. — Lieut. Ebenezer W. was chosen Moderator and Se- 

June, 1777. — The regt. was in service at Fort Ticonderoga until its 
evacuation by St. Clair, July 6, 1777. 

August 16, 1777. — He served as Adjutant in the battle of Bennington, 
which was waged by Gen. Stark and his Green Mt. boys against Col. Baum, 
who w-as sent by Genl. Burgoyne to seize the stores at Bennington, but was 
defeated with the loss of nearly his entire force. In this battle Henry, the 
brother of Ebenezer, was killed. 

Nov. 12, 1777. — He had the title of Brigade Major, as shown by the 
following entry: "Brig. Major Walbridge built a store house in Benning- 
ton and had assistants assigned him by order of the council, Lieut. Edgerton 
and other workmen to be allowed $1.00 a day in addition to their ordinary

Oct., 1776. 

When in Bennington, Vt., in July, 1897, the original of 
this valuable paper was loaned me by Miss Gertrude Hubbell, 
a descendant of Capt. Elijah Dewey, living in the homestead 
near Bennington Centre, and the owner of many family relics. 
I took the paper to Watson, the photographer, and secured 
a negative, from which this copy is taken. On the back of the 
paper was the following : 

"Reed. Bennington, May 7, 1777 of Elijah Dewey one 
"hundred & Forty sevin Dollars the whitch Money he Reed. & 
"gave his Rect. For on My pay Role at the pay tabel in 
"Rec'd. pr Me Samuel Wright. 


March, 1785. — During eight years of service the original Constitution 
of Vermont had developed so many faults that its revision became impera- 
tive, and to prevent possible disunion the revision was not submitted to 
popular vote, but to a council of censors chosen from the ablest men in the 
State and for this specific purpose. The journal of the house shows that 
these censors were elected the last Wednesday in March, 1785, and included 
Genl. Ebenezer Walbridge, to whom a certificate of election was issued May 
6, 1785. 

Oct. 12, 1786. — He was chosen Councillor for the ensuing year. 

Extract from Governors and Council, Vermont, Vol. Ill, p. 130, in- 
cluding foot-note : 

Assembly Journal, 28th Feb. 1787. His Excellency, the Capt. General, 
— the Governor; laid before the house his general orders of yesterday, di- 
viding the State into two divisions, six brigades, and fourteen regiments. 
Ordered, that the members of council and assembly belonging to each 
brigade where there is no brigadier, nominate a Brig. General of such brigade 
and make report tomorrow morning, and that tomorrow morning be as- 
signed for the Governor, Council and Assembly to elect Brigadiers General. 

Thursday, ist Mch. 1787. 

Agreeably to the order of the day, the Governor, Council and General 
Assembly proceeded to the choice of Brigadier Generals for the ist, 3rd, 4th, 
5th and 6th brigades. The ballots being taken, the following persons were 
declared to be duly chosen, viz. 

Col. Ebenezer Walbridge, ist Brigade; Col. Benj. Wait, 3d Brigade; 
Col. Isaac Clark, 4th Brigade; Col. Israel Morey, 5th Brigade; Col. John 
Strong, 6th Brigade. 


Joseph Fay Secy. 

For the Oct. Session of Council, 1794, he received for 58 miles travel 
and 22 days attendance £9 — 12 — 8, and for the Oct. Session, 1795, for 90 
miles travel and 20 days attendance, £1 1 — 15 — o. 

March 30, 1803. — He was a Grand Juror. 

Sept. 3, 1805. — Was made Councillor. 

Dec. 4, 1805. — Moderator of Cong. Soc. meeting. 

March 25, 1812. — Ebenezer Walbridge was a Grand Juror. 

Jennings says, p. 217, "Genl. Ebenezer Walbridge, an early settler in 
Vermont from Norwich Conn, and highly distinguished in the civil and mili- 
tary annals of the town and previously a member of the church; adopted 
Winchester sentiments," i. c, those of Revd. Mr. Winchester, who preached 


tlic Universalist doctrine, and the adoption of wliicli was doubtless the cause 
of our ancestor's excoinmimication from the churcli in 1814. 

He was a representative of the town in the Geni. Assembly in 1778 and 
1780, and a member of the State Councils for eight years, 1786-1795. 

In the beginning of the State Papers of Vermont, Hist. Socy. of Penna., 
at Phila.. Pa., are several papers of those assemblies called General 
Conventions, which precedetl and led up to the General Assembly. One of 
these papers is signed, and the signatures include that of Ebenezer Wal- 

The names of Henry, Stebbins, and Gustavus Walbridge appear on 
Freemen's lists of Sept. 4, 1804, and Sept., 1806. 

Oct. 3, 1819. — Genl. Ebenezer died intestate, and Dec. i, 1819, Steb- 
bins W. was appointed Administrator. The Estate was appraised at $5882.25, 
and among others were the items 60 Bushl oats @ $15. 7 tons hay @$38, 
32 sheep @ $48, 8 Bush rye @ $4.00. His books were mainly on religion 
and history, as shown by the inventory on file at Bennington, covering 
several pages in the Probate Records and giving real estate as follows, inider 
date of Jan. 5, 1820: 

The homestead farm with \ of Grist Mill, Paper Mill, Saw Mill, Trip 
hammer shop with the utensils thereunto belonging together with |th of the 

water privilege thereunto belonging, 27 acres of land $3000 

Also 971 acres of land called the Walbridge farm 1950 

Also four acres on the Henderson hill 130 

Stebbins Denio Walbridge, a grandson of the General, wrote about 
1875, "Col. Ebenezer Walbridge was one of the most venerable looking 
men at eighty years of age I ever saw, he dressed in short breeches, long 
.stockings, silver shoe buckles, three cornered hat, silk waistcoat; and with 
an eagle eye which never cowered before men, he constituted a figure and 
presence not often seen in these days. I often rode out with him in his car- 
riage about our town, where he was always saluted by his title, and always 
responded with a grace that commanded respect from all. He was a mem- 
ber of the Congregational church of this town for fifty years. After the 
close of the Revolutionary war in 1786, he built himself a fine residence 
and the house is in fine condition and occupied by one of his descendants." 

The house referred to is that at Paper Mill Village, or Bennington Falls, 
and is now (1898) occupied by Mr. Henry A. Walbridge and his dau., with 
whom resides Mrs. Sophia Winne, who celebrated her looth birthday on 
July 2y. 1898. The porch is modern, and in 1826 the old gambrel roof, with 
its dormer windows, was altered to the present one by Daniel Story and 


Norman Harvey, the latter of whom married Betsey Gibbs, who was related 
to the Walbridge family. Otherwise the house is practically as the builder 
and owner left it, and is well preserved. Much of the work was done by 
General Ebenezer, and the elaborate paneling and cornice of wood in the 
room on the right as one enters, prove him an adept as a carpenter and

Nov., 1766. — Henry, Sr.'s, name is on a petition of the settlers to the 

Henry, Sr., appears as Sergt. on pay roll of 9th co. in 8th regt. of 
Continental troops, Abram Tyler, Capt., for service of 1775. He had also 
been 4th Sergt. of the ist co. of Militia org. 4 Oct., 1764, and his name with 
that of Solomon appears on the list of those of Capt. Saml. Robinson's co. 
taking part in the battle of Bennington. The Archives of State of N. Y., 
Vol. I, p. 536, state that a "Pay roll for the year 1780, a manuscript found 
among the Vermont papers, shows the names of privates Silas (83) and 
Henry Walbridge." This Henry could hardly be (37), but may refer to (48). 

Ver. Hist. Gazetteer and Jenning's Memorials of a Century both say that a 
roll of Capt. Saml. Robinson's co. at the battle of Bennington, Vt., shows 
the names of Henry (37) and Solomon (81) Walbridge, but the Adj. and 
Inspector Genl. of Vermont says. May 14, 1895, in response to inquiry. "We 
have no roll of Capt. Samuel Robinson's co. at the battle of Bennington, 
one is given in Hemenway's Vt. Gazetteer, Vol. i, but we do not give certifi- 
cates or swear to what we may find in history." 

Nov. 18, 1778. — Col. Ebenezer Walbridge and Samuel Robinson, Esq.. 
are bound for £6000, for the said Walbridge acting the part of a faithful 
guardian to Henry W., son of Henry W., deed.

half the barn and all the house on the same, also the privilege of a road from 
the S. W. corner of the above said piece into an ash swamp which contains 
the chief of the fencing timber on the farm in order to take an equal share 
of the same." 

Henry, St., is buried near the old church at Bennington Centre. His 
epitaph is as follows: 

Mr Henry Walbridge I Who, Amiable in the social, esteemed 
in the christian, faithful in the civil, and brave in the military 
life, gloriously fell in defence of American Freedom in the 
Battle of Bennington on the i6th of August 1777 in the 33rd 
year of his age. 

In the cemetery at Bennington Centre is the following epitaph : 
In Memory of Henry Walbridge 2nd who departed this 
life March 4. 1797 in the 21st year of his age. He was the 


only son of Henry Walbridge who fell fighting in defense of 
his Country in the Memorable Battle of Bennington 1777. 

Note. — From the above epitaph it would seem that the first three chi. of Henry Senr. 
died in infancy. No record further than that of their birth has been found, and that is 
taken from the Bennington town records. The monument commemorating the battle of 
Bennington is reproduced here by the courtesy of M. E. Watson, of Bennington, Vt. 
The monument contains an entrance hall 20x20 and 29 feet high. From the ceiling is 
hung the camp kettle used by Gen'l Burgoyne. Two hundred feet above the ground is 
the look-out room, from which the battle ground is plainly seen. The dimensions of the 
monument are: Base, 37x37 feet; height, 301 feet io54 inches; cost, $100,000. 

Vermont Hist. Mag., Vol. I, p. 143, says: "In Oct., 1764, a militia co. was 
formed in Bennington, of which an authentic roll has been found among the 
papers of the late Capt. Elijah Dewey by his grandson, E. D. Hubbell, Esq., 
headed as follows : 

"Muster roll of the first co. of Militia in the town of Bennington org. 
Oct. 24, 1764." Among the names thereon are John Fassett, Captain, and 
Henry Walbridge, 4th Sergt. 

1783-1784. — Henry was a town representative. 

Sept. 5, 1786. — On a list of freemen admitted to oath appears the name 
of Henry Walbridge, Junr. 

Feb. 21, 1797. — An act empowering Benj. Fassett to sell the real estate 
of Henry Walbridge the second &c. having passed the house was read and 
concurred in by Gov. and Council. 

The will of Henry Walbridge Junr. is copied from the Probate Records 
at Bennington, and is as follows : 

In the name of God, Amen. I, Henry Walbridge, Second, of Benning- 
ton, in the County of Bennington and State of Vermont, being weak in body, 
but of perfect Mind and Memory, thanks be given to God, calling to Mind 
my Mortality and knowing that it is appointed to all Men once to die, do 
make and ordain this to be my last Will and Testament. First of all, I give 
and bequeath my Soul into the hands of God who gave it, hoping and trust- 
ing that through the rich grace of God our Saviour he will accept and re- 
ceive it to his heavenly Mansions above, my Body I commit to the Dust, 
to be buried in decent Christian Burial, nothing doubting but that in the 
Morning of the Resurrection I shall Receive the same raised in incorruption. 

As to such Estate as it hath pleased God to bless me with in this Life, 
I will and bequeath the same in the manner following. — 

First, I will that all my just and honest Debts, be paid out of my Real 
and Personal Estate, by mv Executor. —

Secondly, I will and bequeath to my dear Brothers and sister to wit, 
Eunice Nichols, Dewey Nichols, Elisha Nichols, Elijah Nichols and Hiram 
Nichols, whom I most tenderly love, all my Real and persona! estate, which 
appertains or fell to me from my Deceased Father, together with all other 
Estate, which I may die possessed of, to be divided to them in equal shares 
by my executor, earnestly beseeching them to accept this legacy as a sincere 
token and tenderness which I bear them, as being descended from one 
mother, the Memory of whose Virtues I must attest at this Moment and 
pray God that I and my dear brothers and sister may follow her example. 
And should any of my Brothers or sister not Survive me, it is my Will, that 
my Estate be divided equally among the Surviving Brothers and Sister, or 
such of them as do survive me. 

I hereby make, constitute and appoint, my Trusty friend, and Guardian, 
Benjamin Fassett Esquire to be my Executor, Ratifying and confirming 
this and no other to be my last Will and Testament. In witness whereof 
I iiave hereunto set my Hand and seal this Fifth day of January 1797.

Ebenezer Walbridge and Job Wood contested the above will on the 
ground of Henry not being 21 years old, and of undue influence by E.xecutor 
and those named in will. The will was probated, appeal taken and allowed.

Mrs. Bethiah Sanford, who d. Sept. 12, 1808, cet. 85, and the baptisms of 
Joseph Sanford, July 27, 1740, and Sarah Sanford, May 6, 1744. The 
records of the First Cong. Ch. at Norwich give the m. of Gustavus as on 
May 13, 1790, and to Anna SafTord. The Fourth Battalion, Wadsworth's 
Brigade, Col. Selden, 1776, was raised June, 1776, to reinforce Washington 
at New York. Served in New York City and on Long Island, was caught in 
the retreat from the city Sept. 15, and suffered some loss; present with the 


army until Dec. 25, 1776, when term of regt. expired. On the roll of Capt. 
Huntington's co. from Norwich, Conn., is the name of Gustavus Walbridge, 
private. {Records of Conn. Men in the Revolution, War of 1812, and Me.vico.) 
On the Norwich deed books is an entry, "Gustavus Walbridge to Town 
of Norwich, July 21, 1787, sold for £2 — 18 — o on account of taxes, by Mun- 
dator Tracy, Town Collector." Gustavus is said to have moved in 1804 to 
Bennington, Vt., where he doubtless resided, at least until after his wife's 
death. His children were all born at Norwich, as shown on the T. R. :

and Porter were in the War of 181 2, and drew bounty land.

owned the Walbridge farm for fifty years, and can recollect "Capt. John and 
his sons William, Selah and Roger."

ISAAC* {John,^ William,^ Henry^), was born Jan. i8, 1745, at Preston, 
Conn., and the fact noted on the town records of Coventry, Conn., where his 
father moved about 1749. 

Isaac m. Hannah Smith, and must have lived for a time at Lebanon, 
N. H., as "The Pay Roll of Capt. Jonathan Chase's Regt. of Militia in the 
State of N. H. which regt. went and reinforced the Northern Continental 
Army at Ticonderoga by Major Genl. Folsom's orders May 7, 1777," shows 
among the Lebanon men the name of "Isaac Walbridge, Sergt. disch. June 
13, 1777, in service i m 7 da, am't. of wages £6 — o — 10, travel to Ticon- 
deroga at 3d. per mile, no m, £1 — 7 — 6, travel home at 2d. pr. mile, allow- 
ing two days provisions, 70m., o — 11 — 8, whole amount £8 — o — o." {State 
Papers, N. H. Rev. Rolls, Vol. II, p. 15, and Vol. XV.) 

Although no Walbridge appears on the Ch. or T. R. of Lebanon, the 
T. C. wrote in 1891 that some of the name had lived in the town. (See also 
No. 128.) 


Isaac later went to Bethel, Vt., where the deed books show convey- 
ances : 

June 9, 1809.— David Burroughs to Isaac Walbridge. 

Jan. 21, 181 1. — Isaac Walbridge to Webster Walbridge. 

June 22, 18 19. — Isaac Walbridge to John Wallace; and on same 
date, John Wallace to his "honored Father and Mother Isaac and Eunice 
Walbridge." This last entry would suggest the existence of another daugh- 
ter than Lavinia, also that Isaac had married again. 

The Bethel reconls of b. and d. were not regularly kept until 1857. The 
existence of the chi. Harvey and Henry seems doubtful, though their names 
were reported by a descendant of Isaac, who wrote that Webster was the

History of Susquehanna Co. says, "The first settler on Dutch Hill was a native 
of Connecticut, Lemuel Wallbridge, who was located as early as 18 12 near 
its top. Eliza K. Wallbridge died on the Dutch Hill farm, and was buried 
on the Brock farm in Forest Lake Township, Susquehanna Co., Pa. Lemuel

Elijah W. was one of the early settlers of the town of Milton, Saratoga 
Co., N. Y., where he located about 1770 on the farm adjoining what is now 
known as the Swan farm. 

Jan. 17, 1786, he purchased 325 acres of land for £325. The deed for 
this land, drawn on parchment, is now (1892) in the possession of Wm. Hol- 
loway Wallbridge, of Belleville, Canada, was to Elijah Wallbridge, Yeoman 
of the County of Dutchess and State of N. Y., and was acknowledged 14 
June, 1786, before James Duane, Mayor of N. Y. city. The land is 
described as in the co. of Albany, being part of the allotment of the Patent 
of Kayerderosseros, and lies near Howard's Corners. 

Elijah in 1802 moved to Canada, joining his brother Asa. He died at 
the mouth of the River Trent in Upper Canada (now Trenton), and is buried 
in the Church of England burying ground in Belleville, Ontario, Canada, 
twelve miles east of Trenton on the Bay of Quinte. On his arrival in 
Canada, he bought largely of real estate in the neighborhood of Belleville, 
and much of that land is now in the possession of his descendants. 

Among his purchases were some 2000 or 2500 acres in the Township of 
Ameliasberg, Co. of Prince Edward, about 200 in Percy Township (a fine 
farm), and some hundreds of acres in Township of Clarke in New Castle 
district, a ver\' fine part of the country. 

"Shelly says he heard Grandfather (54, Elijah) talk about driving oxen 
for his father, who always had poor oxen because he worked them in the 
cool of the morning and evening, and then turned them out in the middle 
of the day, at which time the oxen would not eat on account of the heat. He 
would have preferred working them in the middle of the day, and letting 
them feed in the cool, for a tired ox turned out at night will after eating, lie 
down and generally be found in the same place the next morning. 

Grandfather prided himself on his knowledge of cattle, farming and ox 

Shelly says that the old folks used to talk about their ancestors having 
left England on account of having been implicated in the gunpowder plot, 
they did not like the parliament. 

He also says that Grandfather Wallbridge went as a volunteer to 


Kingston in 1812, carrying a musket and riding in a day on horseback from 
Trenton to Kingston." 


YiXyi^Ali* {Amos? Amos- Henry^), b. Oct. 11, 1752, at Stafford. 
Conn. (T. R.), m. there June 2y, 1771 (T. R.), Israel Converse.

verse, wife of Mr. Israel Converse, d. set. 24 years, and Jan. 24, 1773. d. an 
infant of Mr. Israel Converse and Hannah his wife, aged about 8 months.

(T. R.), d. there June 23, 1823. m. Nov. 23, 1786 (T. R. and C. R. agree, but 
Mrs. Sherman Converse writes, "The record of his m. is in the family Bible 
and written by my father, so I am sure it is correct, and the date is Dec. 8, 
1786"), Miriam McClure, b. 1767, d. May 6, 1820, aet. 53, dau. of Dr. David

to communion, her dau. Miriam was bapt. May 13. 1770. On the list of

CO. enlisted Jan. 25, 1777, term 3 years. Promoted Fife Major Feb. i, 1777, 
disch. Jan. i, 1780. His name also appears as musician on the list of Conn, 
pensioners of 1818 as published in Pub. Doc's, ist session of Congress. 
(Conn. Men in the Rev.) 

Porter W.'s tombstone gives above date of death and age 60 j-ears, but 
the church records give age as 63, which tallies with other data, and is prob- 
ably correct. The fam. Bible gives m. Dec. 8, 1786. The birth of 
sixth chi. Henry is the first mention of the children on Stafford town records.

record of this branch has been a difficult one to trace, a mem. in a family 
Bible, owned by Percy E. Walbridge, of Boston, gives the names of the chi.,

ELEAZER* {Elcazer? Henry,- Hciiry^). was probably born in 1748 at 
Norwich, Conn., though he does not appear on the T. R., but is mentioned 
in the division of his father's estate as the only child. He d. Oct. 31, 181 5 
(T. R.), at Randolph, Vt., where he took up a farm in 1787, coming from 
Stafford, Conn., where his children were all born save Jewett, who is said by 
his descendants to have been born at Litchfield, Conn., while the family were 
moving to their Vermont home, which they reached by driving an ox team 
along the trail blazed through the forest. The Randolph T. R. state, "Juett, 
son of Eliezer Walbridge and Abigail his wife, was born the 26th day of 


February A. D. 1791, and Eli son to above d. 25, Aug. 1791," the latter 
was possibly the son born on the journey. Eleazer m., Aug. 25, 1768, at 
Stafiford, Conn. (T. R.), Abigail Washburne, dau. of William and Lydia, the 
name is also spelled on Stafford records Worshborn and Worthborn. The 
Stafiford Ch. records show the bapt. Oct. 29, 1775, of the chi., Phoebe, Susa, 
Abigail, and Williams, and birth of Ames as March 30, 1777, also admission 
to communion July 9, 1775, of Eleazer and his wife Abigail, and bapt. March 
21, 1784, of " a child of Mr. Eleazer Wallbridge named Cinda." The same 
records give bapt. Nov. 23, 1760. of a chi. of Ensign Timothy Edson, Junr., 
named Eliab. Eleazer's name as a private appears in the roll of Captain Par- 
son's CO. Third Battalion, Wadsworth's Brigade, Col. Sage. 1776. The 
Battalion was raised June, '76, to reinforce Washington at New York.

Bennington, Vt., Jan. 7, 1784. 

The original of this interesting church paper is owned by 
Mrs. Geo. W. Robinson, of Bennington Centre, Vt. 

In July, 1897. she kindly allowed the compiler of these 
notes to have it photographed, and to her courtesy is due the 
fac simile shown opposite. 


Bennington, Vt. (T. R.), Mary Holmes, b. Sept. 5, 1754, d. about 1830 at 
Cambridge, Vt. She was probably the dau. of Moses and Keziah Holmes, 
of Norwich, Conn., where the records show their children, Abel, b. Sept. 15, 
1 75 1, and Amos, b. June 29, 1753. No early records of Holmes at Ben- 
nington, save the m. of Solomon to Mary above given. They had five chi. 
b. at Bennington, the others at Cambridge, Vt. : 

204 i. Mary, b. Dec. 22, 1777, at Bennington (T. R.), m. at Cambridge, Vt.,

212 ix. Almira, b. Dec. 23, 1793, m. Riley Burnham. 

213 X. Solomon, b. May 5, 1795, m. Elizabeth McKinstrey. 

Solomon, Sr., was a member of Capt. Samuel Robinson's co. in the 
battle of Bennington Aug. 16, 1777. He was chosen petit juryman March 
29, 1780. and in 1785 moved to Cambridge, Vt. The records of St. Albans, 
Vt., show that Solomon was Sheriff of Franklin Co. during 181 1 to 1813, 
and Henry, his son, a Deputy Sheriff in 1813, and administrator of his 
father's estate in 1815. 

Mrs. S. B. Campbell writes, "Grandfather was High Sheriff of St. Al- 
bans for a good many years previous to his death. I have heard Mother tell 
about going to see him, with Father, Sunday, Sept. 11, 1814, and she has 
more than once pointed to the rocks in Fairfax, as we have been passing, 
which they climbed to see some signs of the battle which was in progress at 
Plattsburg. Grandfather's sons were in the battle, and Father started for 
Plattsburg immediately after arriving at St. Albans, but on hearing the news 
of victory returned and gladdened grandfather's last hours, he died the 
Thursday following." 

Plattsburg in 18 12 became the headquarters of the U. S. Army on the 
northern frontier, and in Sept., 1814, was the scene of the capture of the 
British flotilla under Commodore Downie, by the U. S. boats under Com- 
modore McDonough, and the subsequent retreat across the Saranac of Sir 
George Prevost, who had been attacking the village with a powerful army. 

From the narrative of Jonathan M. Blaisdell, written at the time, we 
take the following extract : 


"The day of the election at St. Albans, after the election, Sanford Gad- 
comb, Solomon Walbridge son of the old Sheriff at St. Albans and myself 
started to go to Plattsburg as soldiers on horseback through Georgia and 
Milton, at the sand bar at Milton we attempted to cross over." 

It was a mile across, the night was very dark and a strong wind was 
blowing. Their horses got off the bar and had to swim, and as the waves 
were high they would soon have perished had not Walbridge turned in the 
right direction and found footing for his horse. They then returned to the 
tavern and waited until the moon rose, when with new arrivals of some ninety 
men they crossed without difficulty and took their part in the battle of Platts- 
burg. Solomon W. was probably in the co. of Capt. Farnsworth from St. 
Albans, as the roll has the name of Sanford Gadcomb, who crossed the bar 
v.ith him. (Ver. Hist. Gazetteer.) 

The Bennington town records give the name of Mary Holmes for the 
wife of Solomon, while Sarah Robinson's genealogical notes, printed in 
1837, give it as Sarah Holmes. I have taken Mary as probably the correct, 
one. The second authority gives the name of Solomon, Jun.'s, wife as 
Elizabeth Kenister. 

The Adj. Gen. of Vt. writes in May, 1895, that there is no official record 
of a muster roll of Capt. Saml. Robinson's co. at the battle of Bennington, 
and mentions the one in the Vt. Gazetteer, but adds, "We do not give certifi- 
cates, or swear to what we may find in history." (See also Jennings' 
Memorials of a Century, p. 201.) 

Solomon must have been a member of the State Legislature, for the 
Records of Gov. and Councils show his name on Committees Oct., 1804, 1805, 
on Bank Com. in 1806, and on Com's. 1809-1812-1813.

SILAS* {Henry, ^ Henry, ^ Henry^), b. June 27, 1759, at Norwich, Conn. 
(T. R.), d. May 12, 1840, at the homestead, Bennington, Vt. He m. Oct. 2, 
1783, at Bennington, Rhoda Gunn, who, b. 1761, d. Jan. 14, 1830, at Ben- 
nington, where the earhest mention of a Gunn is the m. of Moses Gunn, Jr., 
to Phoebe Nichols, Dec. 9, 1802 (T. R.). Silas was in the battle of Ben- 
nington Aug. 16, 1777, and wrote a report thereof, which Jennings quotes 
from in his Memorials of a Century, p. 183, and should be in the possession 
of Ex-Gov. Hall, of Vt., or his family. He was also taken prisoner by the 
British while scouting near Fort Ticonderoga, an account of which is on pp. 
306-525 of a manuscript volume in the Vt. Sec. of State's ofifice, entitled Rev. 
Service. State of Vt. 

Silas was a farmer, and lived all his life on the farm near Bennington, 
from whence his son Silas moved west, and founded the Rochester, N. Y., 
branch of the family. A manuscript found among the Vermont papers at 
Albany, N. Y., called a pay roll for the year 1780, shows the names of privates 
Silas and Henry Walbridge. (Pp. 536-7, Vol. I, Archives State of N. Y.) 

The names of the first eight chi. appear in the genealogical notes of 
Sarah Robinson.

David moved from Bennington, Vt., about 1820-5 to western N. Y.. 
accompanied by his sons, daughters and grandchildren. He settled first 
near Rochester, but afterward moved to Erie, Pa. At a Bennington town 
meeting, 27 March, 1893, David was made Surveyor of Highways, and 30 
March, 1803, Petit Juror, lister and Surveyor of Highways. 

"His second wife, Ruth Brush, was the first white child born in the town 
of Vergennes. Her mother died young and she was left in charge of the 
family. She was brought up in the strictest puritanical way, and it always 
showed in her demeanor, which was rather stif¥. Though rigidly upright 
she had one of the kindest hearts that ever beat, and no more perfect praise 
can be spoken of her than the words of one of her stepsons, David Safiford 
Walbridge, who said no mother could be more devoted and more tender 
than she, that if the question of preference came up between her own and her 
husband's children, the latter always had it; in short, she was that rara avis, 
a good step-mother." 

Sarah Robinson's notes give first m. of David Walbridge as to Eba 
Brush in 1791, and state that Elkanah Brush d. in Indiana. (See Brush 
notes.) 2UwWa,

have been my grandfather's sister, and I will send your letter to Alva Hop- 
kins, my father's eldest bro." Alva Hopkins wrote from Hamilton, N. Y., 
March 29, 1895, when 90 years old, saying, "In 1794 my grandfather, his 
chi. and Aunt Mercy all removed to Burlington, N. Y. Uncle Henry d.

EBENEZER WILLIAM* {Ebenezer,'' Ebenezer,'' Henry^), was born 
Oct. 28, 1779, at Bennington, Vt., bapt. Oct. i, 1786, and d. March 23, 1856, 
at Lansingburg, N. Y. He graduated from Williams College, Williams- 
town, Mass., in 1800, and soon after was made Principal of the Academy 


at Lansingburg, N. Y., where he Hved and died. His residence was on 
River St. overlooking the Hudson River. Licensed as a lawyer May 19, 
1804, he became senior member of the firm of Walbridge and Tracy, also 
attorney for the Bank of Lansingburg, the oldest banking institution in the 
State. This bank was succeeded by the present banking house of D. Powers 
and son, whose cashier, Mr. W. C. Groesbeck, wrote as follows: 

Lansingburgh, N. Y., Feb. 4, 1898. 

Mr. W. G. Wallbridge, Litchfield, Conn. : 

Dear Sir: — In answer to your inquiry of the 2d instant. From the 
book of Minutes of the old Bank of Lansingburgh we learn that Ebenezer 
W. Walbridge was elected director Aug. 5, 18 18, and continued in 
ofifice until Feb. 24, 1849. During the existence of the bank from 
1813 until 1877, there were 69 directors. Mr. Walbridge served for 
more consecutive years than any other director, viz., 30 years and 
223 days. On July 5, 1837, he was elected President, and retained the 
position until April 9, 1845. He succeeded Abraham C. Lansing, who was 
the Bank's first president. Fortunately for your research, the book of 
Minutes was at hand. For many years it laid in the cellar, covered with 
dust and ashes, but was recently found and placed with our records. 

Very truly yours, 

W. C. Groesbeck. 

Mr. Walbridge was one of the charter members of the company com- 
posed entirely of Lansingburg men, and incorporated June 18, 181 1, under 
the title of the "Cohoes Manufacturing Co.," with a generous charter en- 
abling them to manufacture "Cotton. Woollen and Linen Goods, make Bar 
Iron, Anchors, Mill Irons, Nail Rods, Hoop Iron and Iron Mongery." 
Capital to be $100,000, divided into 2000 shares. This was one of the first 
companies formed under the general act of March 22, 1811. 

A tract of sixty acres on the bank of the Mohawk was secured, together 
with the water privileges, while land was also bought on the other side of 
the river embracing Simmon's Island, from Jacobus Van Schoonhoven, who 
was one of the Patroons of that time. In an accounting at Bennington, Vt., 
of Stebbins Walbridge as Adm. of General Ebenezer's estate, is the credit. 
Sept. 26, 1820, "By I part of Paper Mill and land, sold E. W. Walbridge, 
$1082.22," also a charge for "Two days time of self and horse going to 
Lansingburg to sell land," in which matter E. W. W. seems to have been the 
attorney. He was also President of the village for many years. Town Clerk 
for ten years. Commissioner of Schools for twelve years, and a member of

1859. Selah moved to Erie Co., Pa., in 1828, traveling the entire distance 
with an ox team, and for years after his arrival having only Pittsburg as the 
nearest market town. He went to Monroe, Mich., on business, started 
home on the lake and was never again heard of. 

He and his brother Porter inherited the homestead at Sharon, Vt. 
Selah bought Porter's interest therein, together with the land warrant given 





Porter for services in the war of 181 2. About 1850 Western parties went to 
Vt., bought out the heirs to this warrant, and then wrote Selah's heirs for 
information, but the warrant was meanwhile lost. Gilbert Hurd, a lawyer 
employed by Selah's heirs to look up the matter went West, and so ended 
the tale of the warrant, a possible fortune lost by carelessness.

A deed on record at Bethel, Vt., transfers property from Henry Wal- 
bridge, of Enosburg, Vt., to his father Webster W., in 1832. Another of 
July I, 1828, is from Webster to James Blodgett. 

The Bethel records are incomplete, and contain very little Walbridge 
data. The dates for Webster Walbridge and chi. are from an old family 
Bible owned by Orpheus Coburn, of Enosburg, Vt.

Bethel, Vt. (T. R.), James Wallace. Her name on the record is written 
Veona, and a deed of June 22, 1819, would seem to show that John Wallace 
was a son-in-law of Isaac. (See No. 46.) 


JOHN^ (Isaac,'* John? William;- Henry'). This is probably the John 
Walbridge who graduated at Dartmouth Coll. in 1791, said to have been 
from Lebanon, N. H., to have practiced medicine in Maine, and moved to 
Western N. Y. The T. C. of Lebanon wrote in 1891 that though the name 
did not appear upon the record, some of the family had lived in the town. 
Search of the church records gave no clew. A history of Windham, N. H., 
pub. 1883, says on p. 196, "Dr. Walbridge was in town as early as 1812 and 
practiced his profession, he was associated with Dr. Harris of Salem before 
he came to town." To this Dr. John Walbridge I shall ascribe "the three 
sons of a Dr. Walbridge of N. Y. City," leaving it for others to prove me 
right or wrong in my deductions. 

329 i. Jefiferson D., d. about 1836, in Davis Co., Kentucky. 

330 ii. John D., d. a bachelor at Cincinnati, Ohio, about i860, leaving 

an estate of $100,000 to charitable institutions of that city. In 1853

wife was Elizabeth Newton, b. 1791 in the old fort at Marietta, Ohio, .1 
granddau. of Col. Stacy, who was one of the pioneer settlers of Ohio. Isaac 
lived near Waterford, Ohio. His grandson, James R. Walbridge, says Isaac 
had a bro. John. The chi. reported as two boys and three girls.

The Hon. Lewis Wallbridge was born in Belleville, Canada, 27

Note. — The only mention of Purdy in Savage's Gen. Diet, of N. Eng. is "Frances and 
Mary Purdy, Fairfield 1644 are witnesses to the will of William Frost, 6 Jan. 1645, possibly 
the first mentioned was a man." The Purdy family were among the early settlers of Fair- 
field, Conn., where Francis Purdy, the first member of the family of whom we have any 
account, died in 1658. His sons were Francis, John and Samuel. John, the second, left 
Francis, who had two sons, Joseph and John. Joseph, the eldest, was one of the proprie- 
tors of the White Plains and Laine Wills purchases, N Y. The arms of the family are Or on 
a chevron Azure, between three Mullets Sable, pierced of the field. No less than 21 of the 
Purdy family signed the following protest, "We the subscribers, freeholders and inhabi- 
tants of the County of Westchester, being assembled at the White Plains in consequence 
of certain advertisements, do now declare that we meet here to declare our honest abhor- 
rence of all unlawful Congresses and Committees, and that we are determined at the hazard 
of our lives and properties to support the King and Constitution, and that we acknowledge 
no representatives but the General Assembly, to whose wisdom and integrity we submit the 
guardianship of our rights and privileges." (See History of Co. of W estehester , N. Y., by 
Robert Bolton, Jr., 2 vols., N. Y. 1848, in which the Purdys have frequent mention.) 

Gilbert Purdy was of Anglo-Saxon descent, his father being EngHsh 
and his mother Irish. He lived near N. Y. City until the Amer. Rebellion of 
1777, when he entered the British service, where he served until near the 
close of the war, when he died ofT N. Y. on board his ship. He had eight 
children, all of whom except one daughter came to Canada at the close of 
the war or soon after. His oldest son, David Purdy, was born 20 Oct., 1756, 
and died 24 May, 1838. The next chi. was Mercy, b. 28 Aug., 1758, m. 
Major John Everett, (3) Gilbert Purdy, born 9 Jan., 1763, d. 5 Jan., 1851, 
set. 88, (4) Micajah, b. 10 May, 1766, d. 26 Jan., 1844, set. 78, (5) Rhoda, 
afterward Day, b. 15 May, 1770, d. 8 April, 1840, ast. 70, (6) Charlotte, after- 
ward Herchmer, b. 26 Aug., 1773, d. Aug., 1843, ast. 70, (7) Samuel Purdy, 
b. March, 1777, d. 1849, ast. 72. David Purdy located on lot 42 first con- 


cession, Township of Eniestown, wliich lie afterward bought of the Rev. 
John Stewart in 1787, and was patented to tlie Rev. Stewart l\Iay 17, 180J, 
containing 311 acres. It is now occupied by his heirs. David Purdy came 
from N. Y. in 1783 with David Badcock, Josh Booth, Robert Clark, Danie! 
Rose, Major Everett, John Burnett and others. T. C. Wallbridge, of Belle- 
ville, Can., writes 22 April, 1868, "Gilbert Jones told me that Uncle Samuel 
Purdy near Kingston has hunted up all the Purdy family and has it." Also 
mentions Amos Wright, of Richmond, as posted.

473 iv. Alexander Solomon, b. Oct. 12, 1828, m. Harriet E. Taylor. 

Solomon Walbridge bought from his bro. Martin, Nov. 10, 1817, for 
$500, about 109 acres of land lying close under the N. end of Mansfield 
Mountain, near their native town of Cambridge, Vt. This land he sold to 


John Warner prior to May 5. 1822, at which time he removed to the Prov- 
ince of Quebec, Canada, where he bought out a squatter on Lot 16, Range 6, 
afterward called Stanbridge Centre, and now known as Mystic, a thriving 
town forty miles from Montreal, with three railroads through it. The 
country at that time was a wilderness, and the roads mere wood trails, where 
his wagon stuck in the mud, and he was obliged to hire a Dutchman living 
near, to bring his oxen and draw his goods through the mire to the little 
log cabin that was to be their future home. His wife, with the two elder 
girls under her shawl, sat on the sunny side of the hut while he with the man 
cleaned out the cabin, which had been used as a refuge by the sheep and cattle. 
As there were no windows, they hung blankets over the openings which 
served to admit light and air, and took up their respective tasks, he working 
in the fields and she busy with her needle, having for some three weeks to 
use the light that came down one of those old Dutch chimneys made of sticks 
and mud. After getting things to rights Mr. Walbridge went to Highgate, 
Vt., 16 miles distant, brought back glass for windows and other necessary 
articles, and in two years had a good house and barn. In 1832 the family 
moved to Bedford, two miles south of their first location, and kept a board- 
ing house for the employees of some large tanneries, which, however, burned 
that year, and they returned to the farm, where they remained until 1836, 
when the house was leased for a tavern, and they spent the year in Bedford. 
In 1837 they kept the tavern themselves, and the stages from Boston via Bur- 
lington, Vt., stopped for breakfast. There were then no railroads thereabouts, 
save a short one of 14 miles from St. Johns to La Prairie, on which they went 
to Montreal by riding 18 miles to St. Johns. In 1843 the house was rebuilt. 
Mr. W. was a Justice of the Peace, also a Capt. of Militia, and served in the 
Canadian rebellion of 1837-8, being at the battle of Moore's Corners, when 
the defeat of the rebels ended any chance of their success, and, as his son 
writes, related the next morning at breakfast how the balls whistled, and 
that he shot a horse hitched to a canr.-^n, to prevent the rebels carrying the 
cannon away.

his tombstone is probably correct, though going back 30 y. 9 mo., would give 
his birth in March, 1804. He is buried at Bennington Centre, and his stone 
reads as follows : 

Septimeus Walbridge departed this life Nov. 27 1834 set. 30 y. 9 mos. 

Farewell my child and partner dear 
If aught on earth could keep me here 
T'would be my love for you 
But Jesus calls my soul away 
My dearest friends, Adieu! 

Dec. 20, 1834, an inventory of estate shows pers. prop. $1316.06 and

estate are allowed Romulus and John Jay Walbridge.

Mary, widow of Edward Keyes and dau. of Hughes. She was born 

Sept. 21, 1802, in Hiram T. P., Vt., d. Nov. 9, 1890, at Marseilles, 111., where 
the chi. were all born. Mr. W. moved from Bennington to St. Lawrence 
Co., N. Y., about 1827, and thence to Marseilles, 111., in 1837, settled on a 
farm two miles west of the town, and became quite wealthy. His son, Ed- 
ward K., writes, "My father's mother died a hundred years old lacking one 
month, and her mother died at 104 years of age, my mother was 88 at the 
time of her death." 

Narrative of Mrs. Alonzo Walbridge, who was widow of Edward Keyes : 

"We came to La Salle Co., 111., in Nov., 1830. During our journey 
we travelled five days without seeing a house of any kind, but at last reached 
the hospitable cabin of Christopher Long on Covil creek where we remained 
six weeks. On Christmas Day we moved to the north bank of the Illinois 
river about five miles east of Ottawa. We reached our cabin in the evening, 
it was bright moonlight and a wild and dreary place our new home seemed, 












though I said nothing lest it should discourage my husband. Our log house 
was about twelve feet wide and fourteen feet long and one story high. 
Owing to the extreme cold we were unable to build our chimney but 
little higher than the mantel shelf should be, so that when the wind came 
from the South, we had to open the cabin door to let out the smoke. The 
bottom land about us was covered with high grass intersected with Indian 
trails, while ours was the only house on the bottom between Ottawa and 
Joliet, a distance of fifty miles, and Ottawa had but three houses. In the 
Spring while I was away and my husband alone, two Indians stopped and 
took dinner with him. They told him that the Sioux Indians would soon 
come and kill all the Pale Faces, so we took the alarm, packed up our things 
and went to Indiana, thus escaping the dangers of the Black Hawk war. We 
returned to our cabin in the spring of 1832 and found it as we had left it. 
After putting in the crops my husband went East and I stayed alone two 
months, was taken with the ague and shook every other day, was asked to 
go to some of the neighbors but thought 1 would stay and take care of what 
we had. The winter of 1832-3 was very cold and the mill at Dayton frozen 
up, so that we had to pound corn for bread I have lived to see the wild 
region which appeared so forbidding on that Christmas Eve in 1830, trans- 
formed into one of the most thriving portions of the west."

March 3, 1803, at Coleraine, Mass., d. Dec. 12, 1866, at Kalamazoo, Mich., 
hved with her grandfather the Revd. Samuel Taggart, until 1818, when she 
went to Byron, Genesee Co., N. Y., where she lived with her father until her 
marriage. Her husband in 1840 adopted his wife's niece, Frances Glover, 
b. 1838, giving her his name, and she was married from their house Nov. 9, 
1858, to Oliver G. Steele, of Buffalo, N. Y., where she resides at 90 N. Pearl 
St. Mich. Pioneer and Hist. Collection says, "Mr. Lincoln while at Kalamazoo 
was the guest of Hon. David S. Walbridge. Some ten or twelve years after 
his visit a member of the family found a pocket knife lost by Mr. Lincoln 
at that time, and it was sent to Mr. Robert T. Lincoln, who thankfully re- 
ceived it as a relic of his distinguished father." On the list of students in 
the Climax High School, Kalamazoo Co., in 1863-4, is the name of Ellen 

David Safford Walbridge was born and educated in Bennington, Vt., 
and when 18 years old removed to Geneseo, N. Y., in 1826 to Jamestown, 
N. Y., and in 1841 or 1842 to Kalamazoo, Mich., where in 1846 he had a 
hardware store. Here he soon became a prominent business man, pur- 
chased wheat, and to market his grain put flat boats upon the Kalamazoo 
River, and established a line of vessels to run from the mouth of St. Joseph's 
River to Buffalo, N. Y. His operations at that time were of great benefit 
to the farmers of the adjacent country and to the village itself, as the money 
so put in circulation went through many hands and opened the way for more. 

For a number of years he was the principal dealer in wheat and flour, 
establishing large flouring mills, which soon made Kalamazoo an important 
shipping point to the East. He also carried on a large mercantile business, 
and was interested in extensive farming enterprises, giving especial attention 
to stock raising. Air. Walbridge took a deep interest in all political move- 
ments of the day, and foresaw in the attempted enlargement of the slave terri- 
tory a danger that must arouse all the combative feelings of the North. Al- 
though an old line Whig of the Henry Clay type, he was therefore among the 
first of those to oppose the attempts of the States' rights leaders to force 
slavery upon the Western States, and was made the presiding officer at the 
Jackson convention, which was the birthplace of that Republican party des- 
tined to sustain the Union in the coming conflict. In the fall of that year(i855) 


he was elected to Congress by a good majority from an heretofore strongly 
Democratic district, and served until 1858. It may interest some of to-day's 
politicians to note the names of the political parties of 1855. Among them 
were the Republican, Rum, Whig, Democratic, Fusion, Free Soil, and 
Know Nothing. Mr. Walbridge was for several terms a member of the State 
Legislature, twice in the State Senate, and Postmaster under Prest. Taylor. 
A strong and staunch man, he was one of those whose presence in a new 
community was of especial value, and caused his loss to be most sincerely 
regretted by his friends and associates.

SOPHIA" {Stebbins* Ebenezer,^ Ebeneser,^ Henvf), b. at Bennington, 
Vt., July 27, 1797, she was m., May 5, 1825, at the Presby. Ch. at Lansing- 
burg, N. Y., by the Revd. Samuel Blatchford (who, the record states, re- 
ceived $30 as his fee), to John Lansing Winne, son of Lavinus Lansing 
Winne. He was born July 30, 1772, at Watervliet, N. Y., and d. Jan. 30, 
1850, at Albany, N. Y. Mrs. Winne is living with her nephew, Edward A. 
Walbridge (583), at the homestead at Bennington Falls, where she was born, 
and on July 27, 1897, celebrated her looth birthday, on which the photo- 
graph was taken that is here reproduced. 

"Sophia Walbridge was married in 1825 to John Lansing Winne, of 
Albany, N. Y., and her home from that time was in that city, where she had 
a large circle of friends. Mrs. Winne has been a widow for many years, and 
on the death of her sister. Miss Charlotte Walbridge, in 1893, she became 
a member of the family of her nephew, Edward A. Walbridge, at Walbridge 
homestead, Bennington Falls, North Bennington, Vt. 

"Mrs. Winne is a dainty, well preserved lady, in the enjoyment of excel- 
lent health, and with but slightly impaired faculties. Naturally she lives 
much in the past, and frequently speaks of the friends of her youth as though 
they were still living. 

"She was attired for the occasion in a dress of silver gray silk, and the 
picture was a beautiful one, as her fair young grandniece, Miss Harriet H. 
Walbridge, stood at her side, gowned in white over pale green, presenting 
a charming contrast of youth and old age. 

"The guests were received by Mr. and Mrs. Olin Walbridge, of Brook-

Short will be our parting

Together we'll come to meet you 
On eternity's deathless shore 

Insatiate death, thine arrows fly 
And bring our kindred to the ground 
The parents leave, the orphans sigh 
Salute their numerous friends around 
But lo! a voice from heaven is heard 
On bursts another froiri the grave 
It brings good tidings from the Lord 
Death to destroy, but man to save

b. Aug. 25, 1819, at Lansingburg, N. Y., d. Nov. 12, 1885, at Saratoga 
Springs, N. Y. He was m. at 11 a. m. May 29, 1845, in Grace Epis. Ch., 
at Waterford, Saratoga County, N. Y., by the Reverend George B. Eastman, 
to Esther INIargaret Knickerbacker, who was born Aug. i, 1826, at Water- 
ford, N. Y., and d. June 2, 1862, at their residence, 109 Lake Ave., Saratoga 
Springs, N. Y. She was the dau. of John and Caroline (Chester) Knicker- 
backer, her father was a son of Col. John Knickerbacker, of Schaghticoke, 
N. Y., and his wife Elizabeth Winne. He was for more than fifty years 


president of the bank of Waterford, N. Y., and a man prominent in the busi- 
ness and social life of the community in which he dwelt. 

The following letter, written soon after the wedding by Mrs. John 
Knickerbacker, mother of Mrs. Walbridge, is of interest, giving as it does 
details of the ceremony, and showing what letters were before cheap postage 
and rapid transit destroyed the art of letter writing. The letter was to 
Joseph Coit, Esqre., postmaster at Ellsworth, Ohio, where his widow died 
but recently : 

Waterford, N. Y., Monday Evening, June 30, 1845. 

Dear Cousin Joseph : — My pen has long been silent, for it has not 
been possible for me to write you before, the wedding gave me full employ- 
ment. My sisters, with Mrs. Sigourney (the authoress), Alfred (Chester), 
wife and daughter, arrived in the car Tuesday evening. On Thursday morn- 
ing I awoke, as the Irishman would say, after a sleepless night; it was rain- 
ing very hard, but before eleven it cleared, and the church was full. The 
bridesmaid, Jane Chester (afterward Mrs. Wm. A. Coursen), with Mr. Bliss, 
entered first. Sophia Todd and Mr. Hall, then Mr. W. and Margaret. The 
bride had on a tarletan muslin, with three tacks and work above the tacks. 
Three rows of elegant lace about her neck, and a bridal pin, both the gift of 
my dear mother, white flowers on her head. They saw company here till 
three, and the house was thronged. We had twenty-seven at dinner. They 
left at five in a coach and four for Albany, and took the boat for New York 
with several gentlemen who came up purposely for the ceremony. Uncle 
(Mr. Wm. G. Bull) expected them, and Jane Chester and Mr. Bliss dined 
with them, and quite a party were there in the evening. The next morning 
they went over to Elizabethtown with Jane (Mrs. Coursen), who returned 
to her school. On Tuesday they left for Philadelphia. Mrs. Backus gave 
them an elegant dinner, and they met the next day a few friends there at 
tea. Mr. Chauncey kindly urged their staying with him at Burlington, and 
they made a delightful visit there, and passed Sunday at Brooklyn with an 
uncle of Mr. Walbridge's. They arrived here Tuesday morning, and stayed 
with me a fortnight, and then left for housekeeping. They have a new and 
pleasant house, and very prettily furnished. Uncle (Mr. W. G. Bull) gave 
her her silver, and was all kindness in many ways. Her friends have been 
very liberal to her: she had many beautiful gifts. 

Dear child, may she have just so much of this world's goods as may fit her 
for Heaven, and no more. I wish I could send you some cake, not that it 
is half as good as your dear wife's, but it has the charm of being wedding 
cake. Mr. Bunce, E., and his two boys were here on their return from Can- 


Lliiir -_::u 




ada, and took John K. (the writer's son) with them. He has not yet re- 
turned. Louisa (her sister) is still with me, though in poor health and 
spirits. Airs. Ellis died of an affection of the heart the 25th of May. Mr. 
Eastman is soon to leave his people to be settled in Conn. Miss Catharine 
Peebles was married the 20th of May to Dr. Austin, a young physician here. 
It is thought a good match for lier, and is very pleasing to the family. My 
Bro. Alfred, after making all his arrangements to go to Cincinnati, the other 
minister determined to go, and Alfred had reluctantly to give it up. His 
health is very miserable. Mr. K. (her husl)and) is better than usual. John 
(her son) now expects to enter college this fall. Jane (now Mrs. Wm. O. Cun- 
ningham) is thin. She has a good school, and often talks of Ohio. Thomas 
(her son) grows very fast. I long to see your little Frances, but when it will 
be I cannot say. Do let us hear from you soon. Mrs. Van Schoonhoven 
has just returned from New York. She brought me a beautiful bracelet of 
her hair. I shall value it highly. She said sister sFrances did not look verj- 
well. Remember me to your dear wife, and a kiss to Frances. My kind re- 
membrance to Mr. and Mrs. Talmadge and my friend Mrs. Adams. Do give 
us the pleasure of hearing from you soon, and any questions you may wish 
answered I stand ready to answer. Mr. Smith has recently returned from 
Illinois. They have been painting his church, taken away the side seats, and 
improved its appearance very much. They have a new organ in the Episco- 
pal Church. Yours affectionately, T C K 

Henry Thomas Walbridge, eldest son of Ebenezer W. Walbridge and 
Sally Morgan, was born 25 Aug., 1819, at Lansingburg, Rennselaer Co., 
N. Y., a small town on the bank of the Hudson River, and a few miles above 
the city of Troy. He first went to school to Mr. Saunders in a school-house 
opposite the "Seceder" Church, corner of Richards and Congress Sts., after- 
ward to Alex. McCall at the Academy. Among his companions were Wm. 
T. Seymour, V. D. Reed, Edward Allen, Chas. Hasbrouck, Wm. Topping, 
William and Charles Hedges, Norman Chipman, Augustus and John Taylor, 
Theodore Walsh, James P. Wallace, Thomas Wallace, John K. Porter, Wm. 
E. Cramer, and Saml. R. House. 

Leaving home in Aug., 1832, when but 13 years of age, Mr. W. was 
with Morgan & Brush, Auction and Commission House, No. 63 State St., 
Albany, N. Y., remaining five years after the death of Mr. Brush and the 
removal to N. Y. of Samuel Morgan, the surviving partner, who was an 
uncle to Mr. Walbridge. In 1837 he was with Lewis Woodburn on State 
St., and later with Horace Day in Lansingburg. In 1839 he went to Coey- 
man's by stage, thence by boat to Poughkeepsie, N. Y., where he went into 


the dry goods business. There he cast his first Presidential vote for Har- 
rison; heard speeches by Hoxie and others for "Tippecanoe and Tyler too," 
while "Log Cabins and Hard Cider" was the battle cry. He was with R. S. 
C. Heath, No. 2 Cedar St., and in 1840 with the cloth house of S. M. Blatch- 
ford & Samson, Maiden Lane, corner Williams St., N. Y. City. In 1842 
he went into the dry goods business in his native town of Lansingburg, 
having for clerks John Hoyt, Edward Foster, Frank Hoyt and John K. 
Pruyn. In 1849 he sold his business. In 1851 went to Elmira, N. Y., and 
afterwards was in charge of the Hudson Riv. R. R. Co.'s freight depot at 
East Albany, N. Y., to which point the road had been finished. In 1852 he 
moved with his family from Lansingburg to Saratoga Springs, N. Y., was 
with the R. R. Co. for a time, and in May, 1853, started in the Real Estate 
and Insurance business, which he followed until a few years prior to his 

Mr. Walbridge said in a letter from which I quote, "While in N. Y. 
City in 1840 I heard Daniel Webster make a speech in front of the Merchants' 
Exchange, on Wall St., which was packed full of people as far as William 
St., listening with upturned faces to catch the words from the lips of the 
great orator. I saw and shook hands with him again in 1851 at Dunkirk, 
N. Y., upon the celebration of the opening of the Erie R. R. from N. Y. I 
saw the first train when it came in there with Washington Hunt, Benj. Loder, 
of N. Y., and many others. Mr. Webster was near me on the deck of the 
steamer as we left Dunkirk for BufTalo amid the cheering of the crowd upon 
the docks." 

I have often heard him tell of hearing Jennie Lind sing in Castle Garden, 
N. Y. C, when fabulous prices (for those days) were paid to hear her; of 
crossing N. Y. State in canal boats before the railroads were built, and of 
seeing the first train come into East Albany on the completion to that point 
of the Hudson River R. R. 

Mr. Walbridge in youth was known as "the handsomest man in the 
county," his height and figure were good, and to the last his profile was re- 
markable in its beautiful outline. He had a high forehead, exceptionally and 
beautifully shaped nose and mouth, fine regular teeth, and luminous brown 
eyes, while his complexion was clear and olive in its type. 

Mr. and Mrs. Walbridge began housekeeping on the S. E. corner of 
5th Ave. and 6th Sts., in Lansingburg. Two sons were born before the 
removal to Saratoga Springs, where the family first lived at the N. E. corner 
of Broadway and Grove Streets. The following year (1853) they removed to 
the S. W. corner of Circular and Caroline Streets, the birthplace of three 
children, where a partial burning of the house caused an exposure which 





finally resulted in the death of Mrs. Walbridge. The present homestead, 
No. 109 Lake Avenue, was purchased Dec. 22, 1857, and in this house the 
youngest child was born and the parents died. In politics Mr. Walbridge 
was a Republican. Both he and his wife were active members of the Pres- 
byterian Church, she having joined the church in Lansingburg in 1845, and 
carried letters from there to the church in Saratoga. The portrait shown 
of Mr. Walbridge is from a daguerreotype taken in 1842, when he was 23 
years old; that of his wife was taken in 1843, when she was 17; the picture of 
Mr. Walbridge and family in 1874, and that of the house in 1895.

his tribe had been taken, was finally captured while pounding samp among 
the ledges of rock. Capt. Walbridge died soon after my grandmother's

ble. She was born Aug. 17, 1840, at New Bedford, Mass. 

Mr. Walbridge was educated at the public school. In 1855 he went 
West and located at Shelby, Minn., where he took up a homestead of 160 
acres; selling this, he purchased another farm in the same township, and 
followed farming until 1862, when he enlisted in the 9th Minn. Infty, serving 
as orderly sergeant during the first year of service on the Western frontier, 
after which the regiment was attached to General Thomas's command. He 
was in several engagements, and at Nashville contracted lung fever, and 
was in the Memphis Hospital during the remainder of his three years' service. 
Returning to Shelby he was soon elected Sherifif of the Co. on the Demo- 
cratic ticket, though his party was largely in the minority. After serving 
his term he sold his farm and removed to Mankato, where he died. His 
funeral was attended by both lodges of Odd Fellows, of which order he was 
a prominent member. Mrs. W. a few years later removed to Dallas, Texas, 
where she now resides (1893). Her chi., Albert, Hattie, and Herbert live 
in the same place. Dates and names are from the family Bible.

"1 was in London, Eng., in Oct., 1892. and received by post 
an old London City Directory of Streets from Uncle Will, from 
Belleville, containing the names of the London streets in the year 
1815, or thereabouts. Among them was Wallbridge St., near Can- 
non St., New Road, St. Georges in the East. I took said Directory 
and went by omnibus near this locality, and then walked and in- 
quired of policemen and others as to the location of Wallbridge 
Street, and was told that the name had been recently changed to 
Wallburg Street, which I easily found, and walked some distance 
along it, and am perfectly satisfied, not only from the information 1 
received in answer to my questions, but also from the description 
of the locality thereof in the said Directory (of streets of London) 
that I was on Wallbridge Street, or what was until recently so called. 
It is in the very old portion of London, and the houses were old 
but of good build and design, and I am certain of the identity of the 
street, and was told by several residents thereon that it was formerly 
called Wallbridge Street."

son. In 1891 Mr. Wallbridge and his wife celebrated tiieir golden wedding, 
and the following notice from one of the local papers is of interest : 

A social reunion took place at the residence of John Nightingale, Esq., 
on the 17th inst., at which a large company of Nightingales. Wallbridges, 
Andersons, and other relatives and friends were present, and sat down to- 
gether to a sumptuous feast— in memory of the fiftieth anniversary of the 
marriage of Mr. Asa E. Wallbridge to Martha Anderson, the father-in-law 
and mother-in-law of Mr. John Nightingale. The old couple, now well ad- 
vanced in the seventies, were present, looking hale and hearty, surrounded 
by their children and grandchildren, in a most social manner: and the pictures 
of the ancestors of the families hanging on the walls of the drawing-room, 
dating back into the past century, looked like turning the leaves of a very 
interesting history backward. In this case it reminded one of the early set- 
tlers of the Massassaga Point section of Ameliasburg, where Elijah Wall- 
bridge, the grandfather of the honored guest, settled ito years ago, and 
purchased more than 2000 acres of land on the shores of the beautiful Bay 
of Ouinte, opposite to where the city of Belleville now is, where his children. 
grandchildren and their descendants, to the fourth generation, have lived 
and now live, and where the unbroken wilderness and the Indian wigwam 
then prevailed — but which long since by the intelligent industry of these 
people has given place to extended and well cultivated fruitful fields, happy 
homes and palatial buildings. And the old log school-house which for many 
years was used for the double purpose of a school and meeting-house or 
place of worship, has long since given place to a fine stone school-house 
that has the appearance of a little college, and a brick edifice fit for a city 
church, and where the Creator is intelligently worshiped. The families of 
the Wallbridges. Nightingales and Andersons are so interlaced by marriage 
and by the most disinterested and cordial friendship that all who are per- 
mitted to enter with them into these reunions are considered fortunate, in- 
deed, and go away from them with a pang of regret. Let us wish the old 
couple and their many friends many happy returns of these festive occasions.

1847, at Plainfield, Vt., m., April 19, 1872, Cynthia Chase, b. May 8, 185 1, 
at Concord, Vt., dau. of Ehnore and Cynthia (Hill) Chase. Mr. Walbridge 
gives his record as follows, writing from his residence at West Concord, Vt. : 
"My story is brief and commonplace. When I was 16 months old my 
mother died, and I was adopted by a grand-uncle, Chauncey Hill, a well- 
to-do farmer in this town. My father married again, and moved to St. Johns, 
Mich., where he engaged in the practice of law. I attended the district 
school and the town grammar school until 16 years old, and then taught for 
two terms. When I was 17 I enlisted in the 17th Vt. Vols. My uncle re- 
fused his consent, and I wrote to my father, who was then with General 
Burnside's command at Knoxville, Tenn., but he also refused to sign my 
papers. After attending two terms at the St. Johnsbury, Vt., Academy, I 
went to Galesburg, 111., and graduated in the scientific course from Lombard 
University as Prest. of the Class of 1870. It was my intention to study law, 
but returning to Concord at the earnest request of my uncle I remained for 
a time to assist him in the settlement of his afifairs. He had indorsed paper 
for more than $8000, and in 1876 there occurred a series of failures which left 
him a poor man in his old age. There was but one honorable thing for me 
to do, to smooth as best I might the path of him and his good wife during 
their declining years. His property was in a farm, mortgaged and Inudencd 
by a life lease and heavy town taxes. I have discharged the trust, but my 
ambitions were never realized. In 1872 and 1874 I was elected Justice of 
the Peace, and about that time was for two terms Town Superintendent. I 
also served on road commissions, and for several years as Town Grand Juror. 
In 1888 I was elected Town Representative, receiving tiie largest majority 


of any member ever elected in town. I was one of the Committee on Edu- 
cation which reported the school law of 1888, introduced a bill for the pro- 
tection of horse owners, and a bill restricting the investment of Savings Bank 
funds in Western loans, which was enacted, also a bill to reduce the salaries 
of railroad commissioners. That did not pass, but the discussion gave me 
some prominence. In 1889 I was elected County Supervisor of Schools, 
and served until the office was abolished, when I was appointed County 
Examiner. Since 1887 I have had the office of Town Supt. of Schools. I 
am still farming, making sheep raising a specialty. In religious belief I am 
a Universalis!, and in politics a Republican; have always taken a deep interest 
in national ciuestions, and sometimes spoken at campaign rallies."

"Edward L. Walbridge was born Nov. i, 1856, at St. Johns, Mich., and 
educated at St. Johns High School and University of Michigan. He was 
admitted to the bar at St. Johns Feb. 17, 1879, and at that place lield the 
position of deputy postmaster for two years. Was circuit court commis- 
sioner for Clinton county for two years. 

He moved to Ithaca in 1883, and was appointed city attorney of Ithaca, 
which he held for five years in succession. Gov. Luce appointed him circuit 
court commissioner for Gratiot county in 1887, retaining that position for 
two years. Was three years on Ithaca school board, and its president in 
1890. Admitted to United States Circuit and District Courts of Michigan 
in 1886, and has practiced in the courts of Michigan. He was prosecuting 
attorney for Gratiot county from June, 1891. till this spring. 

In 1880 Mr. Walbridge married Miss Mary Topping, daughter of Dr. 
G. W. Topping, of De Witt, Mich., Ex-President of State Medical Associa- 
tion and Secretary of American Medical Association. 


When Mr. Walbridge left Ithaca tlie members of the bar of the 29th 
JuiHcial Circuit for the State of Michigan had a bar meeting in open court 
and passed a set of resolutions of respect and honorable standing of Edward 
L. Walbridge as a member of the bar of 29th Judicial Circuit. 

With such a standing to back them the success of Walbridge & Wal- 
bridge is assured."

MARY'' {Solomon,^ Solomon,* Henry,^ Henry,- Henry^), b. June 6, 1824, 
at Bedford, Quebec, Canada, d. May 6, 1893, at Plattsburg, N. Y. She m., 
June 2, 1847, at Mystic, Canada, Thomas Brainerd Nichols, M. D., b. March 
21, 1817, at Enosburg, Vt., son of Levi and Rachael (Smith) Nichols. Mary 
Walbridge first attended school at St. Albans, Vt., and completed her educa- 
tion at the then well-known seminary at Montreal, Canada, conducted by 
Mrs. Easton. An interesting memorial of Mrs. Nichols was printed by the 
family soon after her death, which presents the life of a fond mother and de- 
voted wife. 

Thomas Brainerd Nichols, son of Levi and Rachel (Smith) Nichols, the 
former a native of Leominster, Mass., and the latter of Cornish, N. H., was 
born in Enosburg, Franklin Co.,Vt., March 21, 1817. His father,after obtain- 
ing what was then known as a higher education, at Groton (Mass.) Academy, 
turned his back upon a prospective professional life, and betook himself to 
the then wild woods of Northern, Vt., where he purchased a small tract of 


timbered land, turning in as part payment the saddle horse and rifle that had 
been his companions on the journey from Massachusetts. He at once began 
to fell the timber and clear the land, and two years later, in Jan., 18 15, he was 
married to Rachel Smith, who accompanied him to his house the following 
spring. To them eleven children were born, eight boys and three girls. Of 
these Thomas B. was the second chi. The farm being still new and heavily 
timbered when Thomas was born, and the number of hungry mouths rapidly 
increasing, he was kept at work on the farm until his nineteenth year. Soon 
after this he entered the Johnson Academy, at Johnson, Vt., and began to 
fit himself for college. He entered the University of Vt. in Sept., 1838, 
spent one year there, and in the fall of '39 went South, spending the autumn 
and winter in Philadelphia, Pa., and the spring and summer in the city of 
N. Y., during which time he prepared and had published the first business 
directory of N. Y. City, after the plan of one he had seen in Philadelphia. 
Selling his interest in this venture to one John Daggett, of Boston, he re- 
turned in the fall of '40 to the University, taking his degree in 1843. While 
at the Academy and College he taught district school during vacations in 
the winters, and worked on the farm in summer. After graduation he taught 
first at Clarenceville (Conn.) Academy, then at Bedford Academy, Quebec, 
both of which schools were adopted by the Provincial Govt, while under his 
charge. In 1848 he gave up teaching to devote himself to the study of medi- 
cine, which he had before pursued as he had opportunity. In Nov., 1850, 
he graduated from the Castleton, Vt., Med. Coll., and practiced at Crown 
Point, N. Y., with his bro., Dr. B. S. Nichols, whom he soon succeeded. In 
1856 he received an honorary degree from his Alma Mater, the Univer. of 
Vt. After thirteen and a half years of arduous work he went to Plattsburg, 
N. Y. In 1865 he especially interested himself in the reorganization of the 
Clinton Co. Med. Soc, of which he has been V. P., Censor and Treas. He 
is also a member of the Northern N. Y. Med. Assoc, and of the Med. Soc. 
of the State of N. Y. During the early years of his residence in Plattsburg 
he identified himself with the First Presby. Ch., of which he soon became 
Trustee and Elder. For years he was Treas. of the Clinton Co. Bible Soc, 
and is now (1895) its President and a life Director in the Amer. Bible Soc. 

At the organization of the Merchants' National Bk. of Plattsburg he 
became and still is one of the directors. 

Always temperate, never using stimulants or narcotics of any kind, he 
is hale and hearty in his 77th year as most men at 50. 

In 1865 he was made U. S. Pension Surg, at Plattsburg, and held the 
office until the organization of the Plattsburg Board of Surgeons, of which 
he was the originator, and became Prest., holding office until deposed by 


the accession of Grover Cleveland to the Presidency. Under Harrison he 
was again on the Board as its Treas., resigning when Cleveland was re-

ALEXANDER SOLOMON" (Solomon,^ Solomon* Henry.^ Hcnryr 
Henry^), h. Oct. 12, 1828, at Stanbridge, Canada, where he was m., Feb. 3, 
1869, by Revd. T. Constable, to Harriet Eliza Taylor, who was born Jan. 26, 
1846, at Petre River, six miles west of Mystic. Canada. She was the dau. 
of Abel Louis Taylor and Almira Hale Ellis. The chi. were all born at 
Stanbridge save Alex. S., who was born at Petre River. Mr. Walbridge 
and family reside at Mystic, Province of Quebec, Canada. As a boy he at- 
tended the district school until 1847. when his father gave up trying to make 
a farmer of him, as he was constantly employed with his gimlet and jack-knife 
in making saw-mills, water-wheels, etc., which he had running on the nearest 

May 26, 1847, he went to Littleton, N. H., to learn the trade of mill- 
wright, and worked there a year, fifteen hours a day, at $12 a month, and 
when his time was up returned home with $130. which he writes was in those 
days a big sum for a boy. This trade he followed until his father's death 
in 1854. After settling the estate, he studied machine work for three 
months, then entered a shop in Malone, N. Y., and was foreman in charge 
of building portable engines. Here he remained for three years, when his 
health failing, he went abroad and visited England, France, Scotland, and 


Ireland, and on his return again went into the Malone shop for three years. 
At the time of Mr. Lincoln's election in 1863 Air. Walbridge, though a 
British subject, cast his vote for him, "and never regretted it." During 
that year he severed his connection with the Malone shop and visited Wash- 
ington, D. C, also many of the battle-fields, being at Gettysburg soon after 
the battle. In 1865 with a friend he took a trip over all the battle-fields, 
visited the Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, and returning to his Canadian 
home, bought out the other interests in the homestead. Through his eflforts 
the first P. O. at Mystic was established, while he also named the town and 
started the Mystic Iron Works. In 1866 he built a new and handsome brick 
house a few rods from the site of the log cabin where his parents first settled 
in 1822. Here the chi. were all born except the son, who was born at Petre 
River, his mother's birthplace. Mr. \\'albridge's mother left as the pro- 
ceeds of her dairy some silver coins, from which he has made a cup and 
spoons, putting on the cup the family coat of arms, with a log cabin with 
old Dutch chimney and an appropriate inscription, thus making a valuable

in that capacity had charge of the disembarkation and transportation of the 
troops, stores and ordnance used in the siege of Morris Island and Forts

Hiram Walbridge, born at Ithaca. N. Y., Feb. 2. 1821, was the son of 
Chester and Mary Walbridge. and great-grandson of Gen. Ebenezer Wal- 
bridge, of Bennington, Vt., of Revolutionary memory. His parents moved 
to Ohio when he was quite young. At the age of fourteen he taught the 
district school for six months without compensation, and when eighteen 
entered the Ohio University, but soon terminated his college career owing 
to his taking an active part in the political campaign contrarv to the college 
rules. Although inclined to Democracy, he had been a frequent visitor at 
the house of Genl. Wm. Henry Harrison, the Whig candidate for the Presi- 
dency in 1840. He warmly espoused the cause of his friend, and accepted 
an invitation to speak in his behalf at a political meeting. While earnestly 
addressing the audience word was brought to him of his expulsion from the 
college. Nerved by this news to greater efforts, he soon roused such enthusi- 
asm in his audience that he received a perfect ovation. He left the univer- 
sity and returned home, completing his education elsewhere. He studied 
law with Judge Tilden. and was admitted to the Bar, but did not practice. 
He was elected an Alderman of Buffalo, N. Y., where he then resided. 

In 1844 he was commissioned by Gov. Bartley as Brig. Genl. of the i8th 
Division of the Ohio Militia, whence came the title by which he was gen- 
erally known. He became very popular as a speaker during the campaign 
of 1844, when he advocated the election of James K. Polk, the Democratic 

During the Mexican War he was offered the rank of Colonel, but de- 
clined, having decided to make New York City his future home. He met 
with extraordinary success, and soon established an enviable reputation. In 


185 1 he visited Europe, and by request represented the American Minister 
at the entertainment given by the leading public men of England to Kossuth, 
the Hungarian patriot. 

Genl. Walbridge eagerly availed himself of the favorable opportunities 
of meeting the leading statesmen and men of note abroad, and gave con- 
siderable time to the study of the existing governments. His experiences 
during this period, covering the events of Louis Napoleon's coup d'etat, were 
very varied, and in some instances remarkable, forming the subject of many 
interesting stories after his return. Among other incidents, perhaps the 
most exciting was that in which he compelled a fraudulent agent in London 
to deliver to him a very large amount of his funds. He had engaged as 
secretary and business representative a former private secretary of King 
Louis Philippe, whose keen eye for his own interest rather blinded him to 
that of his employer. This man having in his possession, with evident in- 
tention to abscond, one hundred thousand dollars belonging to Genl. Wal- 
bridge, the latter waited in his room until midnight, captured him, locked the 
door, put the key in his pocket, and then, with revolver in hand, gave him 
the choice between settlement and death. In 1853 he was elected to Con- 
gress from N. Y. City, and immediately took a trip to California to familiarize 
himself with its situation and needs, returning in time to take his seat. When 
Mr. Walbridge entered Congress he was a comparatively wealthy man, and 
withdrew from business in order to devote himself to public duties. To a 
friend in whose judgment and integrity he liad perfect confidence, he en- 
trusted the bulk of his fortune in the shape of ready money and without se- 

Before his first term expired he lost every dollar of it, was compelled to 
abandon politics for business, and declining a renomination in 1854 entered 
at once into business, and soon was more prosperous than ever. Such was 
his pubHc spirit, however, that while he declined office, he took an active 
part in all the great movements of the day. Having again secured leisure 
by assured success, he gave much time to the maintenance of the Union, be- 
fore and during the Rebellion. 

When war actually came, he assisted in organizing the War Democracy 
and arraying them on the side of the administration. Comprehending the 
issues involved, and the real magnitude of the struggle, he at once advocated 
putting the country on a war footing for not less than three years, with an 
enrollment of 600,000 men, of whom one-half should be kept in the 

President Lincoln wrote him, Nov. 18, 1861, as follows: 

C'-'>':>A'.no2^ I 




Genl. Hiram Walbridge: 

Dear Sir : — Your note reminding me of the fact that as early as April 
last you pointed out to me on the maj) Port Royal and Beaufort as ad- 
vantageous places to make lodgment on the Southern coast is received. I 
am free to confess that you were the first who called my attention to that 
particular locality. I also remember that you insisted that we should call 
600,000 men into the field a considerable time before I had brought my own 
mind up to anything near so large a scale. 

A. Lincoln. 

Genl. Cameron, Secy, of War, formally tendered him a commission as 
Brig. Genl., which he declined, and Prest. Lincoln personally offered to 
make him a Major Genl., which he also declined. 

But his labors in his chosen field of operations were unremitting, that 
of keeping public opinion up to the support of the government during the 
long and arduous struggle. He was an effective speaker, and in the darkest 
days of 1862 his voice was heard at the Cooper Institute, declaring that New 
York would never abandon the government until, after quelling treason 
at home, it could present itself as a great, united, and powerful nation. He 
traveled from State to State, kept up an extensive correspondence with 
governors and leading men, giving his whole heart and time to his country 
until victory finally perched upon the banners of an undivided republic. He 
was elected President of the International Commercial Convention, held at 
Detroit, Mich., 11 July, 1865, at which over 400 delegates of all shades of 
commercial and political feeling were present. Genl. Walbridge died at 
the Astor House, N. Y. City, Dec, 1870, and was buried at Washington, 
D. C. His pall bearers were Genl. Sherman, Horace Greeley, Secretary 
Boutwell, Senators Nye, Wilson and Fenton, Speaker James G. Blaine. Genl. 
Benj. F. Butler, Judge Casey, Representatives Banks and Peek, and Collec- 
tor Murphy, of N. Y. The President, his Cabinet, and many others were 
present to honor the memorial services of this devoted servant of the great 
Republic, whose remains rest in Glenwood Cem'y, Washington, D. C.

Thomas Horace Walbridge,.son of Horace S., writes April 6, 1895 : 

Mr. W. G. Wallbridge: 

Dear Sir: — Your letter of the 4th at hand and noted. In reply, would 
say that there were three brothers in father's family, whose Christian names 
were Hiram, Horace and Heman, and when they became of age and got 
into business, there was so much trouble and confusion, that father and 
Heman put a middle letter in their name. I have asked father a number 
of times what it stood for, and although he told me once or twice that it was 
Stephen, the facts of the case are, I think, that it was put in for the reasons 
stated above, and has no further significance. 

Horace S. Walbridge was a son of Chester and Mary Walbridge. In 
1833 the family removed from Columbus, Ohio, to what then was the town 
of Toledo. At the age of twelve years Mr. W. began business life as clerk 
for Stephen Marsh, a pioneer merchant in a small way. Soon after he 
clerked for Charles G. McKnight. remaining with him for eighteen months. 
When fourteen years of age he went to Palmyra, Mich., as clerk with Walter 
A. Titus & Co. In the winter of 1845-6 he superintended the construction 
of a saw-mill at Ottawa Lake. Michigan, where much of the track material 
of the old Krie &: Kalamazoo Rail'"oad was gotten out. In the spring of 
1846 he took by canal to Cincinnati, Ohio, a stock of straw hats, gathered 
by himself from the French at Bay Settlement, Monroe Co., Mich. Return- 
ing to Toledo, he was with Thomas Watkins. a commission merchant. On 
the death of Mr. Watkins in 1852, Mr. Walbridge took charge of the Toledo 
business of P. Buckingham & Co., and during the following winter traveled 
along the Wabash & Erie canals, investing $1,500,000 in grain and pork. 
At the end of the year he entered the firm, which, in 1857, became Brown, 
Walbridge & King (his partners being Mathew Brown and Frank J. King), 
then Brown, Walbridge & Co., and finally H. S. Walbridge & Co., of which 
Fbenezer Walbridge was a partner. In 1865 Mr. Walbridge became senior 
member of Walbridge, Watkins & Co., at Chicago, from which he with- 
drew to give his attention to business at home, including real estate. In 
1869 Mr. W. was appointed one of the trustees supervising the construction 
by the city of the Toledo &: Woodville Railroad, and was President of the 
board for five years. For 20 years he was prominently connected with 
Toledo banking interests. President of the Northwestern Savings Bank, 
one of the first directors of the Second and the Northern National Banks, 


also one of three Toledo men who, with seven other parties, secured the con- 
struction of the Cohtmbus & Toledo Railroad, and was largely instrumental 
in having Detroit and Toledo connected with the Canada Southern Rail- 
way. Mr. Walbridge w-as foremost in many other business enterprises, deal- 
ing largely in real estate, for several years a member of the Toledo City 
Council, and at the time of his death a member of the election board. In 
politics a Republican, he was President in 1864 of the Lincoln Club, and 
in 1868 of the Grant Club. In 1879 a candidate for State Senator, and 
though not elected, ran 1000 ahead of his ticket in Lucas Co. 

For 30 years as a vestryman of Trinity Prot. Epis. Ch., an ofificer of 
the Protestant Orphans' Home. Home for Friendless Women, Protestant 
Hospital, and as Prest. of the Toledo Society for the Suppression of Vice, 
Mr. Walbridge showed himself always ready to embrace any undertaking 
tending to the elevation of the material or moral welfare of his fellow-citi- 
zens. May Toledo have many men of his character and worth.

Mr. Walbridge left home at an early age to support himself, was a page 
in the National House of Representatives, afterwards in the counting house 
of Granill, Minturn & Co., prominent shipping merchants of N. Y. City. 
After several years with them, he went to San Francisco in 1853, to become a 
partner in a large banking house. The arrangements were not concluded, 
and after two years Mr. W. returned to N. Y. City, and established the com- 
mission house of H. D. Walbridge Si Co. Retiring from business in 187 1, 
he moved to Toledo, Ohio, whence he moved in 1890 to Washington, D. C, 


where he is largely interested in real estate, and resides at 1731 Q St., N. W.

He was elected Governor in 1850 over Horatio Seymour, who defeated

WILLIAM' {Robert.'^ Joseph^), b. July 9. 1803, m., June 30, 1829, Jennie 
Angel, is a tanner in Kent (1868); one or two of his boys went to Australia. 

Oct. 28, 1868, John Wallbridge lived at No. 6 Upper Surrey St., Liver- 
pool. He had a bro. James and a nephew John, both in Liverpool. His 
mother was Mary Holland, born 1781, of Esher, near Hampton Court, Sur- 
rey. She was m., at the old church there, to John Wallbridge, son of John 
Wallbridge, of Piddleton, near Dorchester, Dorset. Her husband had a bro. 
Richard and three sisters. Hannah, Mary and Sarah. John, who m. Mary 
Holland, was then a shepherd on Squire Ellis's farm at Claremont Esher; is 
now a victualler. At Southampton there are, G. Wallbridge, a builder, and 
H. Wallbridge, a cooper. Wm. Baker Wallbridge is a gunsmith at New-

hinton, is Henry Wallbridge, Esq., Santhoney, Skerry Court, near Aber- 
gaveney, Monmouthshire. His wife's headstone says, Elizabeth Wallbridge,

and Ann Miller, who d. June 22, 1843, aged 36 years. 

Frome is a large, populous market town, pleasantly situated on the N. E. 
slope of a hill in the forest of Ledwood, Somersetshire. The name comes 
from the river which flows through the lower part of the town, under a stone 
bridge of five arches, and has over it three other bridges within the parish, 
called Wallbridge. Blatchbridge. and Bradford's Bridge. 

Poorstock is a parish of some 1000 souls in the diocese of Salisbury, Co. 
of Dorset. There were two Wallbridge brothers here, Thomas (I) and Wil- 
liam. Thomas d. about 1809, and was buried in Poorstock churchyard,

William, (7) James. Thomas (III) was buried at Poorstock. He had 
Thomas (IV) of Toller Parcorum, who lives (1868) a few yards from the old 
Swan Inn. He says Poorstock is the home of the Dorset branch of the 
Wallbridge family, and that they held property under the Lord Sandwich 

and the Duke of for five generations, part of which land is still held, 

though most of the lives have been bought up. Some of the same family 
went to live at Stoke under Ham, not far from Odcombe (ask for Ham Hill). 


Thomas (IV), of Toller, is a farmer, paying particular attention to sheep, 
which he buys at the different fairs and fattens for market, doing, he told

(V), a founder, living at Dorchester, (2) George, dead, left widow Ann, who 
lives at Portland Island, (3) Elizabeth, dead, no issue, (4) John, d. unm., (5)

Roles, lives Little Bredy farm. Dorchester, (7) Jane, m. James Brain, of 
London, (8) William, resides Southampton. (9) Eliza, m. Wm. Lay, lives at

bury Parish, and that his grandmother died at Poorstock. 

John Wallbridge and wife Sarah Wats died at Winterburn. He was a 
shepherd at Stapleton, where he and his wife were buried, had seven chi., all 
born there, (i) Susan. (2) Sarah, (3) Hannah. (4) Mars', jet. about 80. (5)

At Crewkerne. in Somerset, near the border of Dorset, there is said to 
be a family of Wallbridges. There was also a family near Bere. Dorset, at 
Turner's Puddle. Two sons went abroad, Luke to America, another to

in Grenstadt, Germany, Dec. 6, 1750, came to America with her parents in 
1754, and was confirmed in 1764. She d. Oct. 16, 1793, of yellow fever, 
was buried in Lutheran ground between Race and Vine and 7th and 8th Sts., 
afterward moved to Laurel Hill Gem. where on her tomb is the following : 

In der zeit, Da in drey Monaten uber 4000 au der Pest. 
Starben entschlief auch Seelig im herren — Elizabetha — -Eine 
lieb gewesene — Gatin des Wilhelm Lehmans — Sie war 
geborhnen den 6ten December 1750 — Schied Seelig ... en 
den 16 October 1793 — Ihres Alter — 42 Jahr — 10 Monath und 
10 Tage. 

About the same time her mother, who had lived with her nine years as 
a widow, died Sept. 6, 1793, aet. 70 y. 3 m. 10 da. She had 10 chi., and lived 
to see 22 grandchi. 

In 1793 Philadelphia was visited by the yellow fever plague. The 
patients died by scores. Their medicine was rarely administered, their food 
was scanty and ill-prepared, their persons were never washed, their filth was 
suffered to stand for days in the very rooms where they lay. Such was the 
popular horror of this place that, rather than go to it, the afflicted hid the 
first symptoms of their malady as long as they could, and, when unable 
longer to do so, locked themselves in their rooms or rushed out of the city, 
and perished under haystacks or in ditches. Nor did those who quitted the 
city in perfect health fare much better. For, once out, it was almost impos- 
sible to go on. At every seaport town along the whole coast a quarantine 
was laid on packets and sloops from Philadelphia. Some towns forbade the 
stages to pass through them. The inhabitants of one burned a wagon, 
loaded with furniture, on the highway. Those of another fired on a 
stage coach. Others put up rude huts on the outskirts, where each stranger 
was carefully examined before he was sufifered to go on. At every ferry 
stood an armed guard to keep back suspected persons. If a hungry fugitive 
begged for food at a farmer's door he was given a crust on the end of a pitch- 
fork and bidden to hurry away. Postmasters would handle no letters till 
they had been seized with a tongs and steeped in vinegar. Innkeepers 
would admit no traveler till he had shown beyond a doubt that he did no 
come from the infected city. But the saddest of all sights were the litt 
children who, hungry, orphaned, and homeless, wandered through ^^ 
streets. No one would feed them. None would go near them. One, 
dead from starvation, was found in a deserted blacksmith shop. (McM'

When in Norwich, Conn., in 1883, looking for Wallbridge ancestors, 
my curiosity was aroused by noticing the name used as a middle name in 
the Meech family. Inquiry developed the fact that in that family a tradition 
ran that the first American Meech was a Wallbridge who had changed his 
name, taking, says a Canadian Wallbridge, the maiden name of his mother. 
The following notes are largely from data sent me by Miss Harriet Wal- 
bridge Fitch, of Norwich, Conn., and notes collected in 1847 ^"d 1888 by 
Levi Witter Meech, the last lineal occupant of the Meech homestead near 
Preston, Conn. — W. G. W. 

In the town of Preston, Conn., close by the village of Preston City, is a 
public burial ground, containing an old tombstone inscribed, "In memory 
of Mr. John Meech, who died Jan. 13, 1782, aged 88 years." Reckoning 
back 88 years, we note that his father, Stephen Wallbridge, who changed his 
own name to Stephen Meech on arriving in this country, must have done 
so prior to 1693. Mr. L. W. Meech's informant in 1846, who had seen one 
or more of the sons in her youth, related that their father Stephen migrated 
on account of religious persecution. Before embarking he concealed him- 
self under a haystack while awaiting a favorable time. He married here, 
and had four sons, (i) John, (2) Daniel, (3) Moses, (4) Aaron. Stephen's 
home in the primeval forest then covering what are now open fields in the 
town of North Stonington, was about two miles east of Preston City, on the 
west side of a cross road which runs southward from the residence of Andrew 
Avery, Esq., half a mile to this spot, and continues on a mile and a half 
further south to the main road, near what became the second residence of the 
Meech family line, after the first house had gone to decay. Only a well now 
filled with stone will in a dry summer mark the site of the first house. 

The oldest son, John Meech, whose death is noted above, m. and settled 
on a farm some two miles north of Preston City. It was remarked that in 












old age he was of an ugly disposition and blind. Years afterward Jacob 
Meech, son of Joshua Meech, who was probably son of John Meech, kept 
tavern in the same neighborhood, north of Preston City. Preston grave- 
stones tell us Mrs. Lucy Meech, wife of Mr. Joshua Meech, d. Jan. 18, 1824, 
set. 95, and that Jacob Meech d. Feb. 21, 1847, ast. 89, while Sarah, his wife, 
died Feb. 10, 1836, ast. 78. This Jacob Meech had three daughters (Polly 
Meech, dau. of Jacob, m. Oct. 12, 1806, Erastus Morgan, b. April 22, 1782, 
d. Nov. 10, 1855, in Preston, Conn., where they were born and Hved), and 
three sons, (i) Appleton, who m. Sybil Brewster, b. Aug. 4, 1794, dau. of 
Elias and Margaret (Morgan) Brewster, (2) John, a peddler, who died a few 
years ago (1880?) in Norwich, and (3) Charles. 

Stephen W. Meech's second son, Daniel, m. a first wife, who soon died. 
His second wife was Amy Wilcox, a woman of extraordinary beauty and 
vigor. They had eleven children, for several years lived in the old paternal 
home, and afterward removed to Canterbury, Conn., where the last will is 

Their oldest son, Hezekiah, married Sybil Brewster, and occupied the 
original Wallbridge house till both he and his second wife died about the 
age of 25, leaving an infant son, Daniel Meech (son by the first wife), to in- 
herit the estate, rented until his arriving at manhood. 

Amy's second son, Daniel, was a Lieut, in the British Army, who was 
killed at Point Levi across the river from Quebec, two or three days before 
the decisive battle under Genl. Wolfe in 1759, leaving a wife and three chil- 
dren. Amy's third son, Thomas Meech, resided in Preston City, having 
married Lucretia Kimball. They had four daughters and six sons, including 
Revd. Asa Meech, who received the degree of A. M. from Brown University 
in 1807, and died in 1849. The fifth son was named Stephen (or Amos). 
The sixth son, Elisha, emigrated to Vermont about 1789, and became one 
of the richest and most influential men in the State. He had five sons. The 
ninth child was Esther Meech, who married Asa Kimball, and was the mother 
of Lucy Kimball, wife of Joseph Tyler. The remaining children were, (6) 
Hannah, (7) Amy, (8) Susan, (10) Jamson or Tamar, who died of fever at 
the age of 16, and one other child, who died young. Stephen (Wallbridge) 
Meech's third son, Moses, built a house about half a mile west or northwest 
of his father's. He lived there for some years, and then emigrated West. 

Stephen (Wallbridge) Meech's fourth son Aaron traveled from place 
to place as a tinker, was never married, and where he died is not known. 

It is recollected that Daniel and Moses were large, powerfully built men 
of great strength. John, the oldest son, was middle-sized, and Aaron, the 
youngest, rather small. The lands of Stephen (Wallbridge) Meech con- 


tinned in the family line to the sixth gen. only, and were sold out of the family 
name in 1873. The occupants were: 

1st. — Stephen Wallbridge, of England or Scotland, who changed his 
name from Wallbridge to Meech. 

2d. — Daniel Meech, son, whose second wife was Amy Wilcox. 

3d. — Hezekiah Meech, son, whose first wife was Sybil Brewster. 

4th. — Daniel Meech, their only son, whose first wife was Zerviah Witter. 

5th. — Revd. Levi Meech, second son, whose first wife was Lydia Tyler. 

6th. — Levi Witter Meach, actuary, whose wife is Susan M. Hayward. 

A letter from Alexander Meech, of Burlington, Vt., in 1892, speaking 
of the above Levi W. Meech having the books of Daniel Meech and quite a 
number of papers left him by his father, the Revd. Levi Meech, who d. at 
Preston about 1872, says also there are a nimiber of old stones in the Preston 
Cemetery of family interest. 

Asa Wallbridge, of Newcastle, Canada, writes that Stephen Wallbridge 
took his mother's name when he changed to that of Meach. 

Stephen Meech, b. in 1769, and a great-grandson of the first Stephen 
Meech, said there were three Wallbridge brothers came to America at the 
same time to escape rehgious or political persecution, and that one of them, 
unmarried, was thrown from his horse and killed. (Compare this with Wall- 
bridge introduction.)

had five sons, one became Governor of the State, another, Ezra, m. Polly 
McNeil, of Charlotte, Vt., lived at Shelburn, Vt., and had a son Ezra, who 
m. Cynthia Finney in 1837, to whose dau., Miss Kate L. Meech, of Charle- 
voix, Mich., are due these notes on Elisha. She also says, "The reasons 
why I look upon the legend of our being Wallbridges as mythical, is that 
my grandfather had an uncle who fought as an officer in the British Army 
in Nova Scotia in the war of 1745. and for his bravery was given a tract of 
land, on a portion of which part of the city of Halifax now stands. This by 
English law was entailed, and should have belonged to my grandfather, as 
his uncle was unmarried, but the proper papers for attesting his claim were 
burned in my great-grandfather's house in Hinesburg, Vt. My grandfather 
had been urged by several lawyers to assert his rights, but he so disliked 
anything like a controversy at law that he would not move in the matter. 
This would look as though his ancestors were Meeches. Then in England, 
down in Devon, there are many Meeches, and I feel sure we must be able to 
trace back our ancestry to them." 

Mrs. Sherman Converse, a Walbridge by birth (370), born in 1830, 
writes, "When I was a few months old, my father and mother journeyed to 
Vermont, at one place where they stopped over night the man of the house, 
as soon as he saw the baby, said, 'Wife, that child is a Wallbridge,' and my 
father in talking with him found that his name was Meech."

May I, 1 701, Joseph Safiford, of Ipswich, Mass., conveys land there and 
also part of his land in Norwich, Conn., to his sons John and Samuel, of 
Ipswich. The deed mentions his wife and names his daughters, Mary Saf- 
ford, Sarah Kimball, and Elizabeth Brown, also speaks of the sons above 
named as then unmarried. The grant to the sons is made on the conditon 
that each will "not hinder or Disturb his sd. parents dureing ye life of ye sur- 
vivor of they from Quietly and peaceably abideing in ye sd. Dwelling house 
and yt. he will provide ye one halfe of all things necessary for ye Credible and 


Comfortable suport & sustentation and reasonably suply ym yr with all (viz) 
sutable meat drink fireing physick and attendance as their age and intirmities 
may require at house & to ye meeting house on sabath Dayes & also Com- 
fortable apparell & Cloathing lodging & washing and also pay ye one halfe 
of all ye sd parents debts already Contracted and such as he shall Contract & 
oblige not exceeding forty shillings pr. annum during his natural life & pay 
& be at ye one halfe of decent Christian funeral judged needful & intermt of 
his sd parents." 

The above Norwich land was prob. that purchased by Joseph in 1694-5. 

Miss Caulkms says in her Hist, of Norzvich, "John SafTord is mentioned 
as an inhabitant in 1698, John, Joseph and Solomon of next generation are 
probably his sons." 

Sarah Robinson's Notes, printed 1837, at Bennington, Vt., begin the 
Safiford notes by saying : 

1st Gen. — Joseph Safiford with his family were b. in Eng., where he d. 

2d Gen. — Joseph SaiTord and his wife Abigail came from Ipswich, Eng., 
to Plymouth, Mass., Hved at Ipswich, Mass., where their chi. were born, and 
removed to Norwich, Conn., in 1723. ^ ^ 

3d Gen. — Joseph, b. 1705, m. Ann bottom, Norwich, Conn. 

Abigail , m. Porter. 

John, m. Miss Plum in Norwich, resided Moristown, Vt. 

Sarah, d. Norwich. 

Solomon, m. Rosina Cady, of Norwich, Conn. 

From the preceding data and other sources we collate the following 
notes on Joseph SafTord, of Bennington, Vt., and his descendants. 

I. Joseph SafTord, b. 1705, at Ipswich, Mass., went to Norwich, Conn., 
in 1723, m. there Ann Longbottom, raised his family, and in 1761 moved to 
Bennington, Vt., being one of the second company of settlers. He was one 
of the first two deacons of the church, also first town treasurer, and one of 
the tithing men. With Samuel Robinson he built the first saw and grist 
mill in the town. He brought from Norwich the records of the Newint 
Separate Church, of which he was deacon, and these records were in the pos- 
session of his descendant, Mrs. Cogswell Morgan, until borrowed some 
years since by Deacon Alfred Robinson now dead. Her dau. writes in 1897 
that they cannot be found. (See p. 53.)

The foregoing notes are mainly from Sarah Robinson's genealogical 
notes, privately printed in 1837, anfl one of the earliest efforts at family re- 

Jennings says, in his Memorials of a Century, "Phineas Scott first came 
here (1762), at the age of seventeen, with his father. They returned to Conn., 
whence they came. The old man died there, and Phineas soon returned. 
He died June 6, 1819, aged 74. 

"A name, Phineas Scott, is upon the roll of Capt. Fassett's military com- 
pany in 1764. Phineas had five sons, Samuel (m. Lucretia Harmon), Henry, 
Hiram, John, Kingsley, and Martin; also daughters, Clara, m. Squiers, 
Betsey, m. Bingham, Mary, m. Hawks, and Rhoda." 

On the roll of Capt. Samuel Robinson's co. at the Battle of Bennington 
is the name of Moses Scott. 

Col. Martin Scott, son of Phineas. was b. in Bennington Jan. 18, 1788. 
April, 18 14, he was made 2d Lieut, in the U. S. Army, was killed at the 
battle of Molino del Rey in Mexico, Sept. 8, 1847, and his remains brought 
back to the old Bennington Centre Cemetery.
